Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."

Title: Understanding Literacy Development
Subtitle: A Global View
Edited By: Anne McKeough
Linda M. Phillips
Vianne Timmons
Judy Lee Lupart
Description:

"Understanding Literacy Development: A Global View" brings together leading
experts from around the world to explore ways to best provide teaching and
learning opportunities, tailored to specific educational needs, to help all
children become better readers.

The premise is that current generic "one-size-fits-all" approaches are
inappropriate for many children and can lead to underachievement and
failure. The contributors write from a stance that reflects not only their
own particular expertise and experience, but also sheds light on literacy
development across cultures, countries, and circumstances. Taken together,
the chapters target a wide and comprehensive set of literacy issues, and
offer an extensive exploration of the complexities of literacy development,
including issues related to early literacy, school instruction, family
literacy, adolescent and adult literacy, and teacher development.

This volume is an invaluable tool for scholars, teacher educators,
professionals and graduate students in the fields of literacy education,
early childhood education, educational psychology, educational policy, and
related areas.
