Mapping the Terrain of Literacy.
Calderonello, Alice
Several types of boundaries divide individuals. These boundaries can be classified as: (1) those created by a physical barrier and/or geographical distance; (2) institutional boundaries; and (3) professional boundaries. Sometimes boundaries play themselves out in a real situation, for example, in a collaborative teaching project involving faculty and graduate students from Bowling Green State University's English and mathematics departments and English and mathematics teachers (and their students) from Robinson Junior High in Toledo, Ohio. Time and effort are required to commute to Toledo for the project and to coordinate with administrators who have different responsibilities and agendas. "Mapping a terrain" conjures up images of the frontier, but the terrain which must be negotiated by educators is densely populated, and crossing "new and different borders" requires a good deal of diplomacy.
