Designed to explore the ways language functions to help children gain access to meaning as they progress through the educational system, this journal issue views communication as a social, interactive process in which speakers and writers attempt to link into what listeners and readers know, want to know, or need to know. The 12 articles in the journal are: (1) Language as a Foundation for Education: the School Context (R. W. Shuy); (2) Language and School Success: Access to Meaning (M. L. King); (3) Factors Influencing Listening: Inside and Outside the Head (S. J. Samuels); (4) Learning to Talk and Talking to Learn (G. Wells and J. Wells); (5) Written Text as Social Interaction (M. Nystrand and M. Himley); (6) Peer Interaction in Learning English as a Second Language (H. Hester); (7) Listening and Responding: Hearing the Logic in Children's Classroom Narratives (S. Michaels); (8) What Children Know and Teach about Language Competence (P. G. Lazarus); (9) Creating the Classroom's Communicative Context: How Teachers and Microcomputers Can Help (C. R. Liebling); (10) How One Classroom Gives Access to Meaning (N. G. Platt); (11) Communication in Small Group Settings (G. S. Pinnell); and (12) Educational Policies That Support Language Development (J. Bates). (HOD)
