Literacy, lives and learning by David Barton( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What is the relationship between people's lives and their involvement in learning opportunities? 'Literacy, Lives and Learning' addresses this question in its examination of adults learning in today's world. With a focus on language, literacy and numeracy, the authors explore the complex relationship between learning and adults' lives, following a wide range of individual students in a variety of learning situations from college to a homeless project and a drug support centre. Based on a major research project and developing a detailed, reflexive and collaborative methodology, 'Literacy, Lives and Learning' describes how to undertake such research whilst exploring the literacies in people's lives and their engagement in learning. Illustrated with case studies of individuals and learning sites, this book addresses participation in activities to how barriers such as violence and ill-health impact on learning. Table of contents: * Introduction (introduction to the project and brief information on the lives of the participants) * The context of adults' learning (the role of learning in peoples lives and in relation to the social structures in which they live) * Literacy, lives and learning as social practice (a social practices perspective on literacy, language and learning) * Situating adult learners' lives (the importance of understanding the places and spaces that learners occupy and how these shape their everyday experiences and sense of self) * A collaborative and responsive methodology (designing a methodology which takes into account the complexity of people's lives and their relationship to literacy, language and numeracy learning) * Literacies in people's lives (five learner case studies looking at how learners use literacy to learn about things they are interested in and how they extend and develop their literacies by participating in literacy events outside of the adult literacy classroom) * Literacy and learning for life purposes (the connection between literacy and learning in everyday life. The use of literacy to find out and learn, and the ways literacy is developed outside of the adult literacy classroom) * Way of participating in classes (four case studies are used to show how participation in classes related to people's lives outside class, particularly their motivations for attending and to their backgrounds. Learner participation and interaction are examined in two literacy classes, a numeracy and ESOL class) * The negotiation of teaching and learning in classes (what adult learners bring to their classes, the teachers' contributions and how these two factors are negotiated in the social space of the classroom) * What people bring to learning settings (the relationship between lives and learning in settings where education is not the main aim but where there is some educational provision. Examples, domestic violence support groups, drug and alcohol support groups and organisations for homeless people) * The negotiation of learning in community settings (how aspects of people's lives shape their engagement in learning opportunities, patterns of participation and interaction, and reluctance to access mainstream education) * Life careers (longitudinal look at adults' lives over time and how life histories influence learning) * Towards a social pedagogy (the implications of life histories and learning on adult education and social practice pedagogy)

This thesis is a study of the role of written texts in processes of identity construction and maintenance in a Catholic parish community.

ACADEMICS WRITING : the dynamics of knowledge creation by Karin Tusting( Book )

3 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Academics Writing recounts how academic writing is changing in the contemporary university, transforming what it means to be an academic and how, as a society, we produce academic knowledge. Writing practices are changing as the academic profession itself is reconfigured through new forms of governance and accountability, increasing use of digital resources, and the internationalization of higher education. Through detailed studies of writing in the daily life of academics in different disciplines and in different institutions, this book explores: - the space and time of academic writing; - tensions between disciplines and institutions around genres of writing; - the diversity of stances adopted towards the tools and technologies of writing, and towards engagement with social media; and - the importance of relationships and collaboration with others, in writing and in ongoing learning in a context of constant change. Drawing out implications of the work for academics, university management, professional training and policy, Academics Writing: The Dynamics of Knowledge Creation is key reading for anyone studying or researching writing, academic support and development within education and applied linguistics"

I am a peacemaker( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This article reports on research addressing the role of writing as a space for producing representations of children's identity as Catholics in a First Communion preparation course. It draws on data from ethnographic participant observation over one year in a Catholic parish in England, focusing on writing in the preparation sessions, taking a social practice approach to identity and literacy. The article argues that in this course, written texts are drawn on to provide spaces within which children produce written representations of aspects of their lives that reify their identities as Catholics. Analysis of the data set demonstrates four ways in which particular kinds of identities were constructed through writing processes. Writing provided space for reframing aspects of children's unique histories and identities within a faith-based perspective; representing children as active agents in the world; producing reifications of internal emotional states in linguistic form; and making relational connections between the children and their church, home, and friendship communities. The article argues that the production of these reframings of children's identities requires multiple kinds of recontextualizations, and that writing provides a key means by which these are brought together
