Tidman, Gemma – Oxford University Press, 2023
The "emergence of literature in eighteenth-century France" changes our understanding of when, how and why modern ideas of literature emerged in France. Using a unique blend of literary and digital methods, it argues that it was in the mid eighteenth century, rather than the nineteenth (as many have claimed), that the word littrature…

Zinsser, Katherine M. – Oxford University Press, 2022
For over 15 years, researchers have described a crisis in early learning classrooms in the United States.

While policymakers have taken steps to mitigate this crisis, disparities in who is…

Martin, Christopher – Oxford University Press, 2022
Many assume that a person's right to education terminates with high school, and that higher education is a luxury addition. The conversation about education changes in palpable ways once we focus on higher education rather than the education we ordinarily think that citizens are due when they are children and teenagers. We see more talk about…

Horwitz, Ilana M. – Oxford University Press, 2022

These different strategies influence how…

Vivian, Bradford – Oxford University Press, 2022
If we listen to the politicians and pundits, college campuses have become fiercely ideological spaces where students unthinkingly endorse a liberal orthodoxy and forcibly silence anyone who dares to disagree.

Kirp, David; Macpherson, Kevin – Oxford University Press, 2022
In statehouses, school boards, and communities across the US, battles are raging over the direction of education policy--from the standards that are shaping what students learn to how test results are being used to judge a teacher's performance.
