Item Description: Wayne State University Press, United States, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 226 x 147 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. In Your Average Nigga , Vershawn Ashanti Young uses his own experiences to examine how black masculinity is shaped by identity performances of racial authenticity, academic literacy, class mobility, and sexuality. Moving between autobiography, autoethnography, and scholarly analysis, Young critiques proponents of code-switching whose solution to the black literacy gap requires inner-city youth to adopt white English vernacular at school and to reserve black English vernacular for home. Your Average Nigga exposes the factors that make black racial identity incompatible with literacy for blacks, especially black males. Drawing on scholarship in both performance theory and African American literary and cultural studies, Young argues that exaggerated perceptions of the gap between black and white linguistic performances harm inner-city blacks by requiring them to choose between abandoning their customary ways of speaking and behaving at the risk of alienating themselves from their families and communities and retaining their speech and behavior as a marker of racial authenticity while isolating themselves from mainstream society. Young also shows that exaggerated perceptions of the gap between black and white racial identities leave blacks in the impossible position of either trying to be white or forever struggling to prove that they are black enough. For men, this also becomes an endless struggle to prove that they are masculine enough. Ultimately, Young argues that far from denaturalizing supposedly fixed identity categories, as many theorists have contended, racial performance only reinscribes the essentialism that it is believed to subvert. Scholars and teachers of rhetoric, performance studies, and African American studies will enjoy this insightful volume. Bookseller Inventory # AAN9780814332481

Item Description: Teachers College Press, United States, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 226 x 155 mm. Language: English Brand New Book. This book presents an empirically grounded argument for a new approach of teaching writing to diverse students in the English language arts classroom. Responding to advocates of the code-switching approach, four uniquely qualified authors make the case for code-meshing --allowing students to use standard English, African American English, and other Englishes in formal academic writing and classroom discussions. This practical resource translates theory into a concrete roadmap for pre- and in-service teachers who wish to use code-meshing in the classroom to extend students abilities as writers and thinkers and to foster inclusiveness and creativity. The text provides activities and examples from middle and high schools as well as college and addresses the question of how to advocate for code-meshing with sceptical administrators, parents, and students. Book Features: * A rationale for the social and educational value of code-meshing, including answers to frequently asked questions about language variation. * Authors from the fields of linguistics, writing studies, English education, and teacher education. * Teaching tips that have been used with students and in professional development workshops. * Action plans that invite readers to make code-meshing a shared project that informs instructional practices and addresses cultural prejudices.

Item Description: Teachers' College Press. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Other People's English: Code-Meshing, Code-Switching, and African American Literacy, Vershawn Ashanti Young, This book presents an empirically grounded argument for a new approach of teaching writing to diverse students in the English language arts classroom. Responding to advocates of the "code-switching" approach, four uniquely qualified authors make the case for "code-meshing"--allowing students to use standard English, African American English, and other Englishes in formal academic writing and classroom discussions. This practical resource translates theory into a concrete roadmap for pre- and in-service teachers who wish to use code-meshing in the classroom to extend students' abilities as writers and thinkers and to foster inclusiveness and creativity. The text provides activities and examples from middle and high schools as well as college and addresses the question of how to advocate for code-meshing with sceptical administrators, parents, and students.Book Features:* A rationale for the social and educational value of code-meshing, including answers to frequently asked questions about language variation. * Authors from the fields of linguistics, writing studies, English education, and teacher education. * Teaching tips that have been used with students and in professional development workshops. * Action plans that invite readers to make code-meshing a shared project that informs instructional practices and addresses cultural prejudices.
