Urban Literacies: Critical Perspectives on Language, Learning, and Community. Language & Literacy Series
Kinloch, Valerie, Ed.
Teachers College Press
Urban Literacies showcases cutting-edge perspectives on urban education and language and literacy by respected junior and senior scholars, researchers, and teacher educators. The authors explore--through various theoretical orientations and diverse methodologies--meanings of urban education in the lives of students and their families across three intersecting areas of research: (1) family and community literacies, (2) teaching and teacher education, and (3) popular culture, digital media, and forms of multimodality. This important volume: (1) Extends the focus on "literacy" to include multiple settings and forms, as well as multiple voices and perspectives; (2) Serves as a model of critical research and an extension of mentoring relationships and collaborative engagements; and (3) Includes a "Critical Perspective" section at the end of each chapter in which authors discuss implications, practices, strategies, and recommendations for improving literacy instruction.
