Children, language, and literacy : diverse learners in diverse times by Celia Genishi( Book )

7 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and held by 592 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Synopsis: In their new collaboration, Celia Genishi and Anne Haas Dyson celebrate the genius of young children as they learn language and literacy in the diverse contexts that surround them. Despite burgeoning sociocultural diversity, many early childhood classrooms (pre-K to grade 2) offer a "one-size-fits-all" curriculum, too often assessed by standardized tests. In contrast, the authors propose diversity as the new norm. They feature stories of children whose language learning is impossible to standardize, and they introduce teachers who do not follow scripts but observe, assess informally, respond to, and grow with their children. Among these children are rapid language learners and those who take their time to become speakers, readers, and writers at "child speed." All these learners, regardless of tempo, are often found within the language-rich contexts of play

Collaboration through writing and reading : exploring possibilities( Book )

4 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 525 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book, a series of essays developed at a working conference on the integration of reading and writing, surveys the historical, cultural, situational and social forces that keep the teaching of writing separate, skew the curriculum to favor reading over writing, and discourage development of pedagogies that integrate the language arts; examines the cognitive processes and strategies writers and readers use outside of school to develop and express their ideas; and discusses the challenge teachers face--to help students develop skills for reading and writing without isolating those skills from meaningful tasks and letting students forget the reasons for these activities. The book contains the following chapters: Chapter 1, "On Collaboration" (Anne Haas Dyson); Chapter 2, Introduction (James Moffett) and "a Sisyphean Task: Historical Perspectives on Writing and Reading Instruction" (Geraldine Joncich Clifford); Chapter 3, Introduction (Guadalupe Valdes) and "Writing and Reading in the Community" (Robert Gundlach and others); Chapter 4, Introduction (Sandra Murphy) and "The Problem-Solving Processes of Writers and Readers" (Ann S. Rosebery and others); Chapter 5, Introduction (Wallace Chafe) and "Writing and Reading Working Together" (Robert J. Tierney and others); Chapter 6, Introduction (Mary K. Healy) and "Writing-and-Reading in the Classroom" (James Britton); and Chapter 7, "The Writing-Reading Connection: Taking Off the Handcuffs" (Art Peterson). (Ms)

For the novice researcher, this book is an essential manual on how to design and carry out a case study. For the experienced researcher, this book offers fresh insights into the theoretical issues that underpin qualitative case study research
What difference does difference make? : teacher reflections on diversity, literacy, and the urban primary school by Anne Haas Dyson( Book )

4 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book reports on conversations in which elementary schoolteachers--who have taught in urban settings for an average of 20 years each--reflect on their professional work. The conversations in the book testify to the teachers' ability to engage young people in active learning--and their stories of teaching and learning verify that difference does make a difference. The conversations in the book explore issues related to teaching children from diverse backgrounds--the multiethnic teachers from the East Bay area of San Francisco met regularly to discuss educational questions. Throughout the book, comments and observations are shared about students, classroom dynamics, schools, and the larger community. In addition, many of the book's chapters conclude with a series of questions designed to guide readers in their own reflections on teaching and learning as well as annotated lists of books, articles, and other helpful resources. According to the book, socioeconomic and language constraints, as well as those institutionally imposed in the form of behavioral labels and standardized tests, do not have to keep children from making great strides in their literacy education. The book concludes with an extension of the teachers' conversations by inviting some academicians to comment on the central concern expressed in the book's title. (Nka)

The ninjas, the X-Men, and the ladies : playing with power and identity in an urban primary school by Anne Haas Dyson( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A qualitative study, presented in the form of an analytical narrative, examined children's symbolic and social use of superhero stories--popular media stories that vividly reveal societal beliefs about power and gender, which are themselves interwoven in complex ways with race, class, and physical demeanor. A second-grade classroom in an East San Francisco Bay k-3 school located in the south central part of an urban area and serving a population diverse in race and social class was observed for three months. Through the writing and acting of stories as part of "Author's Theater" (an optional activity during daily writing time), the children let each other witness their imaginations at work and then raised issues about who plays whom in whose story. The dialogic processes thus enacted allowed more complexity in the rigid images of gender relations and of glorified power. There is no simple classroom procedure that will allow children to achieve some sort of critical consciousness and a world of greater imagined possibilities for all. But there are processes, rooted in the social lives and play of childhood, that can help children deal with the contradictory pressures of growing up in a multicultural society where power is not equally distributed. Contains 20 references and 15 notes. An appendix listing the sex and ethnicity of the second-grade children is attached.) (Author/RS)
