Critical Whole Language Practice in Time and Place
Edelsky, Carole; Johnson, Katharine
Critical Inquiry in Language Studies, v1 n3 p121-141 2004
Critical whole language practice, like any other pedagogy, is enacted within a particular time and place. We present several features of critical whole language practice (as distinguished from two other variants of critical education: critical literacy and critical pedagogy) and illustrate each with examples from one year in one elementary school classroom. We also situate that year in that classroom by describing some aspects of the political context. (Contains 9 notes.)
