Identity and inner-city youth : beyond ethnicity and gender by Shirley Brice Heath( Book )

8 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 793 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How ethnic identity and gender figure in building the embedded identities of youth in different contexts is examined, focusing on the self-concepts of inner-city youth. The voices of urban youth argue that their embedded identities, or multilayered self-conceptions, represent far more than simple labels of ethnic or racial membership. After an introduction "Identity and Inner-City Youth" by the editors, the following chapters are provided: (1) "Ethnicity and Gender in Theory and Practice: The Youth Perspective" (S.B. Heath and M.W. McLaughlin); (2) "Embedded Identities: Enabling Balance in Urban Contexts" (M.W. McLaughlin); (3) "Dances of Identity: Finding an Ethnic Self in the Arts" (A. Ball and S.B. Heath); (4) "Gangs, Social Control, and Ethnicity: Ways To Redirect" (J.D. Vigil); (5) "Child Saving and Children's Cultures at Century's End" (G.A. Fine and J. Mechling); (6) "Collaborate or Go It Alone? Tough Decisions for Youth Policy" (J. Langman and M.W. McLaughlin); (7) "The Winnowing of Organizations" (T. James); (8) "Misperceptions of Gender and Youth: Learning Together, Learning Apart" (E. Hansot); and (9) "Casting the Self: Frames for Identity and Dilemmas for Policy" (M.W. McLaughlin and S.B. Heath). (Sld)

On ethnography : approaches to language and literacy research by Shirley Brice Heath( Book )

12 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The authors weave together narratives of practice and theory that draw on their own field work and that of a novice ethnographer. Their stories take us outside the usual progression of how-to-do ethnography, which moves from research question to data collection and analysis to publication. Readers learn of the motivations and mishaps behind the author's own classic ethnographic studies of language, multimodel literacies, and community practices. The authors use their stories to illustrate the power of curiosity, connection, and continuity in ethnographic pursuits. Keeping language and literacy at the center of attention, this volume offers practical ways for ethnographers to sustain their attention to a constant comparative perspective and to patters of co-occurence in language structures, uses, and values. Appropriate for new and experienced researchers, this readable volume includes examples of ethnographic studies in Australia, Iran, South Africa, the United Kingdom, and the United States."--BOOK JACKET

Words at work and play : three decades in family and community life by Shirley Brice Heath( Book )

14 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Childhood and family life have changed significantly in recent decades. What is the nature of these changes? How have they affected the use of time, space, work and play? In what ways have they influenced face-to-face talk and the uses of technology within families and communities? Eminent anthropologist Shirley Brice Heath sets out to find answers to these and similar questions, tracking the lives of 300 black and white working-class families as they reshaped their lives in new locations, occupations and interpersonal alignments over a period of thirty years. From the 1981 recession through the economic instabilities and technological developments of the opening decade of the twenty-first century, Shirley Brice Heath shows how families constantly rearrange their patterns of work, language, play and learning in response to economic pressures. This outstanding study is a must-read for anyone interested in family life, language development and social change"--

Literacy myths, legacies, & lessons : new studies on literacy by Harvey J Graff( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his latest writings on the history of literacy and its importance for present understanding and future rethinking, historian Harvey J. Graff continues his critical revisions of many common ideas about literacy among scholars and others. The eight wide-ranging and diverse essays speak to each other's central concerns about the place of literacy in modern and late-modern culture and society, and its complicated historical foundations. The introduction for Literacy Myths, Legacies, & Lessons sets the stage for connections between the principal concerns of this book. Drawing on other aspects of his research, Graff places the chapters that follow in the context of current thinking and major concerns about literacy, and the development of both historical and interdisciplinary studies. Special emphasis falls upon the usefulness of "the literacy myth" as an important concept and subject for interdisciplinary study and understanding. Critical stock-taking of the field includes reflections on Graff's own research and writing of the last three decades and the relationships that connect interdisciplinary rethinking and the literacy myth. The collection is noteworthy for its attention to Graff's reflections on his identification of "the literacy myth" and in developing the LiteracyStudies@OSU initiative as a model for university-wide interdisciplinary programs. The essays also deal with ordinary fears about literacy, or illiteracy, that are shared by academics and concerned citizens. The nontechnical essays will speak to both academic and nonacademic audiences across disciplines and cultural orientations. --Book Jacket
