9780748405831: With Literacy And Justice For All: Rethinking The Social In Language And Education (Critical Perspectives on Literacy and Education)

This volume presents analyses of educational and research practices with the first part highlighting bilingual education (the language strengths of minority children), and the second part focusing on whole language (theoretical assumptions, possibilities and limitations), and progressive ways of evaluating students. The book concludes by re-iterating the socio-political nature of literacy, of whole language, and, by implication, of educational and language practices.

About the Author:

Carole Edelsky is Professor of Curriculum and Instruction at Arizona State University. Her research has been based on language and language learning, and she has worked on developing the theoretical distinction between reading/writing and reading/writing exercises. She is active in the Center for Establishing Dialogue in Teaching and Learning, Inc., a non-profit corporation organized by teachers to help teachers take control of their own professional growth, and she has worked with numerous groups of teachers in the United States and Canada on whole language theory-in-practice.

Review:

"The title and subtitle of Carole Edelsky's new edition of With Literacy and Justice For All: Rethinking the Social in Language and Education are more relevant now than when the second edition appeared in 1996. Political and economic changes have profoundly redefined language and literacy for teachers and children.... [The Third Edition] further documents the sociopolitical nature of schooling and in particular, language learning.... We are privileged to read 1) the evolution of Edelsky's thinking, and 2) the effects of the political then and now. Edelsky addresses many issues that are frightening and the book's disturbances compel readers to action. [Its] release comes at just the right time."--Steve Bialostok, Critical Inquiry in Language Studies

"The third edition of Carole Edelsky's text remains just as relevant for educational practitioners and language policy administrators today as when it was originally published some 15 years ago...This text offers up a true picture of the educational landscape as it was and is, and suggestions on how to combat harmful policy with holistic pedagogy."--Amy Schwartz, Language Policy (2008), 7: 305-307
