Voices of the Other: Understandings Emerging from the Controversy.
Griffith, Priscilla L., Ed.; Lynch-Brown, Carol, Ed.
This booklet features articles that explore the roles and relationships in partnerships for enhancing reading and writing in the elementary years. The authors communicate how voices outside the reading profession--parents, community members, and state and federal policymakers--are affecting literacy instruction, and how educators must establish a dialogue with these diverse voices. The booklet's 7 articles are as follows: (1) "Editorial: Voices of the Other: Understandings Emerging from the Controversy" (Priscilla L. Griffith); (2) "The De-democratization of Schools and Literacy in America" (James V. Hoffman); (3) "The International Reading Association Responds to a Highly Charged Policy Environment" (Cathy Roller); (4) "The Voices of Researchers: Conflict and Consensus in Reading Research and Policy" (Claude Goldenberg); (5) "Educators Influencing Legislators: Commentary and the Kentucky Case" (Shirley C. Raines); (6) "Making Kids Winners: New Perspectives about Literacy from Urban Elementary School Principals" (Jennifer C. Dandridge, Patricia A. Edwards, and Heather M. Pleasants); and (7) "Stopping the Silence: Hearing Parents' Voices in an Urban First-Grade Family Literacy Program" (Robert J. Nistler and Angela Maiers). (SR)
