Language socialization in bilingual and multilingual societies
Language as cultural practice : Mexicanos en el norte by Sandra R Schecter( )

16 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in English and held by 1,246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers an ethnographic account of language socialization practices within Mexican-background families residing in California and Texas. It illustrates cases where language is used by speakers to choose between alternative self-definitions and where language interacts differentially with other defining categories (ethnicity, gender, and class). It shows that language socialization is a dynamic and fluid process. The study emphasizes the links between familial patterns of language use and language socialization practices on one hand, and children's development of bilingual and biliterate identities on the other. Using a framework emerging from two geographically distinct localities with differing demographic features, the book compares patterns of meaning suggested by the use of Spanish and English in speech and literacy activities and by the symbolic importance ascribed by families and societal institutions (such as schools) to the maintenance and use of the two languages. Eight chapters discuss the following: (1) "Framing Our Agenda"; (2) "Mexicanos in California and Texas"; (3) "Language as Cultural Identification"; (4) "Enacting Spanish Maintenance"; (5) "Narrative Production across the Bilingual Continuum"; (6) "Doing School at Home"; (7) "Language Socialization in Theory and Practice"; and (8) "Bilingualism in Time and Space." (Contains approximately 230 references.) (Sm)
Learning, teaching, and community : contributions of situated and participatory approaches to educational innovation by Lucinda Pease-Alvarez( )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 1,174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The focus on agency combined with social context, a dialectic to which all of the authors speak, enlarges and invigorates our sense of what is pedagogically possible in societies characterized by diversity and flux." "Teaching, Learning, and Community: Contributions of Situated and Participatory Approaches to Educational Innovation is a timely text ideally suited for courses focused on teacher education and development, informal learning, equity and education, multilingual and multicultural education, language and culture, educational foundations, and school reform/educational restructuring, and will be equally of interest to faculty, researchers, and professionals in these areas."--Jacket
Children of promise : literate activity in linguistically and culturally diverse classrooms by Shirley Brice Heath( Book )

4 editions published between 1991 and 1995 in English and held by 638 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This monograph addresses the challenge of improving literacy learning for all children, especially those in language-minority classrooms. The monograph introduces some of these classrooms in detail, examining and describing their literacy practices and setting forth some of the principles of learning and language that underlie them. It is the result of long-term collaboration between a classroom teacher and a university researcher, and provides a model for university-school collaboration. The monograph sets the stage for future collaborations between practitioners and researchers that can suggest new and creative ways to improve school-based literacy learning. Special attention is focused on the following: cultural and linguistic differences; inside the classroom; writing, learning, and the teacher's role; literate behavior and literacy skills; and building theory and practice together. Suggestions for implementing cross-grade tutoring projects and references and a reading list are appended. (Jl)

Video resources for the teaching of literacy : an annotated bibliography by James E Lobdell( Book )

2 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This 44-item bibliography presents annotations of video resources for the teaching of literacy that feature instructors who effectively put theory into practice--videos that portray literacy teachers and learners in action. To preserve the aesthetic integrity of individual videos produced as part of a series, individual videos are not classified into topical categories. Topics of videos in the bibliography include emergent literacy, reading comprehension, word identification, prewriting, English as a second language, collaborative writing, literature-based classrooms, and multicultural education. In addition to information on how to obtain the video and a detailed review, each entry in the bibliography presents classificatory information under the descriptor "suggested specific uses"--Subject matter audiences for which the resource may hold special appeal and specific topic or problem areas about which the video may prove insightful. Videos in the bibliography were produced between 1984 and 1992, although not all videos indicate when they were produced

Video resources for the teaching of literacy : an annotated bibliography by James E Lobdell( Book )

2 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Responding to the expressed need of classroom teachers and teacher educators for a listing of available video resources which can be used for preservice and inservice education for literacy providers, this annotated bibliography identifies video resources which most fully capitalize on the potential of the medium by portraying literacy teachers and learners in action. The bibliography constitutes a preliminary response and should in no way be considered a comprehensive review of teacher-related videos. It begins by presenting annotations of six individual videotapes from a package entitled "Teaching Reading: Strategies from Successful Classrooms" (1991). This is followed by a separate tape and two more packages containing 16 individual videos between them. The list concludes with two tapes which, while not strictly classifiable under the topic of literacy learning, deal with some of the most urgent issues surrounding language differences in America today. Other videos in the annotated bibliography address such topics as reading instruction, emergent literacy, the process approach to writing, English as a Second Language, and writing instruction Videos in the bibliography were produced between 1984 and 1991.
