[center]Developing Language and Literacy in English across the Secondary School Curriculum: An Inclusive Approach

Developing Language and Literacy in English across the Secondary School Curriculum: An Inclusive Approach By Urszula Clark
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 271 Pages | ISBN : 3319932381 | 3.32 MB
This book draws on original research and a language based pedagogy approach to examine how secondary schools in the UK can devise and implement coherent language and literacy across curriculum policies and strategies, so that grammar and associated metalanguage becomes an integral part of their day to day curriculum practices. The research was undertaken in three 11 to 18 secondary schools in England, where the majority of students are categorised as having English as a second language (EAL), and where a significant minority are also socially disadvantaged in two of the three. The author argues that paying explicit attention to the linguistic structures through which subject knowledge is realised can be of benefit to all pupils in ways that are also socially just and democratic. This book provides an important bridge between academic theory and educational practice that will appeal to applied linguists and sociolinguists, as well as to teachers, teacher trainers and practitioners.[/center]

Portraits of Everyday Literacy for Social Justice: Reframing the Debate for Families and Communities By Susan Jones
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 238 Pages | ISBN : 3319759442 | 3.63 MB
Based on an ethnographic study involving three families who live on a Midlands council housing estate, this book presents portraits of everyday lives - and the literacy practices that are part of them - as a way to explore the complex relationship between literacy and social justice. Each portrait focuses on a different aspect of literacy in everyday life: drawing on perspectives offered by the long and diverse tradition of literacy studies, each is followed by discussion of a different way of looking at literacy and what this means for social justice.
