Gallego, Margaret A., Hollingsworth, Sandra, Gallego, Margaret

SUMMARY

This critical exploration of the theories and purposes of literacy challenges current assumptions about the discourse of schooling. Authors Margaret Anne Gallego and Sandra Hollingsworth, along with eminent scholars, delve into the lives and literacies that have traditionally been excluded from public classrooms and focus on the disenfranchisement that results from such politics. They propose an alternative set of literacies, helping non-mainstream students to learn the dominant language of power while preserving their community and personal identities. Through socio-political analyses, the contributors argue persuasively for expanding what "counts" as literacy to include visual media and technological literacy, multiple sign systems for special education students, community-based literacy and personal literacies. This practical and fresh collection is an essential resource for educators, theorists, and researchers who wish to expand the existing definitions of literacy to include multiple perspectives.Gallego, Margaret A. is the author of 'What Counts As Literacy Challenging the School Standard', published 2000 under ISBN 9780807739723 and ISBN 0807739723.
