Examining L2 Composition Ideology: A Look at Literacy Education.
McKay, Sandra Lee
Journal of Second Language Writing, v2 n1 p65-81 Jan 1993
Three widely accepted assumptions about literacy education are discussed: (1) literacy is a social practice; (2) there exists a plurality of literacies; and (3) literacy educators must address issues of power. Implications for defining second-language composition ideology, research, and pedagogy are examined. (54 references) (Author/MSE)
