Title: Critical Pedagogies and Language Learning
Edited By: Bonny Norton
Kelleen Toohey
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521828023
Series Title: Cambridge Applied Linguistics
Description:

Critical pedagogies are instructional approaches and materials that are aimed at transforming existing social relations in the interest of greater equity in schools and communities. Interest in this area is rapidly gaining momentum. This important new volume applies the critical pedagogical approach to the area of language learning, and in so doing, it addresses such topics as critical multiculturalism, gender and language learning, and popular culture. Committed to language education that contributes to social justice - and the political, economic, and sociocultural changes such justice requires - the contributors explore the meaning of creating equitable and critical instructional practices, exploring diverse representations of knowledge; they also make recommendations for further research in this area, and for critical testing practices and teacher education. Graduate students and researchers in TESOL, applied linguistics, and education will find this volume a thought-provoking and comprehensive presentation of theory and practice in this important new area of scholarship.
