Putting Language Back into Language Arts: When the Radical Middle Meets the Third Space.
Gutierrez, Kris D.; Baquedano-Lopez, Patricia; Turner, Myrna Gwen
Language Arts, v74 n5 p368-78 Sep 1997
Discusses language and literacy learning, and some current language arts practices that warrant reconsideration. Describes and offers examples of the move away from oppositional discourses (set up by pedagogical debates) and to the "radical middle." Notes a move toward a third place where two normative patterns of interaction intersect, creating the potential for authentic interaction and learning to occur. (SR)
