Electronic and Linguistic Connections in One Diverse 21st-Century Classroom.
Barnitz, John G.; Speaker, Richard B., Jr.
Reading Teacher, v52 n8 p874-77 May 1999
Explores one vision of a multifaceted classroom community (comprised of teachers, an intern, cross-age tutors, students, and parent volunteers, all from a variety of language and ethnic backgrounds) in a classroom where authentic discourse and language diversity flourish as children develop many electronic and non-electronic literacies. Notes that learning events involve teaching by assisting performance rather than by repetition and recitation. (SR)
