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

15 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 878 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"--
Identity and inner-city youth : beyond ethnicity and gender by Shirley Brice Heath( Book )

10 editions published between 1993 and 1996 in English and held by 808 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)

Children of promise : literate activity in linguistically and culturally diverse classrooms by Shirley Brice Heath( Book )

9 editions published between 1991 and 1995 in English and held by 647 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)
On ethnography : approaches to language and literacy research by Shirley Brice Heath( Book )

13 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 539 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

Teacher talk : language in the classroom by Shirley Brice Heath( Book )

7 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 167 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Teacher talk can be characterized as a "caregiving" style which has certain identifiable phonological, lexical, and grammatical features. Analysis of classroom discourse can make teachers and students of language aware of the process of communication, and can identify particular uses of nonverbal as well as verbal communication. This, in turn, can help teachers adjust their use of language to pedagogical goals and improve the teaching of language skills and the teaching of general knowledge. Examination by teachers and students of the features of teacher talk as register, discourse, and specialized language of control can help supplement traditional methods of teaching language arts. The following recommendations are made with a view toward observing and analyzing language variation in the classroom: (1) teachers should discuss the language of routines with students; (2) teachers should be conscious of the behaviors of routine that differ for the school as a whole and within their class; (3) students should be asked what can be accomplished when turns are taken in talking; (4) ambiguous instructions should be made explicit whenever possible; and (5) inferences should also be clearly identified as such.

"The Handbook of Research on Teaching Literacy Through the Communicative and Visual Arts, Volume II brings together state-of-the-art research and practice on the evolving view of literacy as encompassing not only reading, writing, speaking, and listening, but also the multiple ways through which learners gain access to knowledge and skills. It forefronts as central to literacy education the visual, communicative, and performative arts, and the extent to which all of the technologies that have vastly expanded the meanings and uses of literacy originate and evolve through the skills and interests of the young."--Publisher's description

Reading lessons from the eighteenth century : mothers, children and texts by Evelyn Arizpe( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Covers the history of reading and children's literature in the eighteenth century. Drawing upon the Jane Johnson (1706-1759) archives in the Bodleian Library, Oxford and the Lilly Library, University of Indiana, it is able to document the typical reading practices of an upper middle class family in this period. More particularly, it draws on these unique collections to throw light on a series of questions currently preoccupying scholars in the fields of the history of reading, the history of children's literature, and the history of women. At the same time, the human presence of Jane Johnson and her children gives this book a wide appeal to non-specialist readers through its thorough use of the Johnson archives
