Abstract:

This is one of two volumes by the same editors that explore historical,philosophical, and cultural perspectives on literacy in China. This volumefocuses on English literacy in China, while the other volume is on Chineseliteracy. In modern day China, English has enjoyed an increasingly importantstatus in education, but not without challenges. The essays in this volumeprovide a comprehensive, cross-disciplinary look at changes in Englishliteracy practices and literacy instruction in China from the first Englishschool in the 19th century to recent curriculum reform efforts to modernizeEnglish instruction from basic education through higher education. Together,the essays address a wide array of topics, including early childhood Englisheducation, uses of information technology to teach English, and teachingEnglish to Chinese minority students. This work is essential reading for thosewho want to expand their understanding of English literacy education in China.
