Sociocultural Perspectives on Language and Literacy.
Richgels, Donald J.
Reading Teacher, v55 n8 p730-33 May 2002
Defines "Discourse" as a conglomeration of "ways of behaving, interacting, valuing, thinking, believing, speaking, and often reading and writing" that marks membership in a group. Considers how some students'"Discourse" may conflict more than others comparing their home Discourse with their school Discourse. Presents three recently published books that help gauge the status of response to the call to action to "do linguistics." (SG)
