Martinez, Danny C.; Morales, P. Zitlali; Aldana, Ursula S. – Review of Research in Education, 2017
Leveraging is often described as the process of using the home and community languages of children and youth as a tool to access the "academic" or "standard" varieties of languages valued in schools. In this vein, researchers have called on practitioners to leverage the stigmatized language practices of children and youth in…

García, Ofelia – Review of Research in Education, 2014
The author of this chapter argues that the failure of Spanish language education policies in the United States to educate both Latinos and non-Latinos has to do with the clash between three positions--(a) the English language, characterized by U.S. educational authorities as the unique and powerful lingua franca; (b) the Spanish language, as…

Chappell, Sharon Verner; Cahnmann-Taylor, Melisa – Review of Research in Education, 2013
Since the implementation of the No Child Left Behind Act in 2001, public discourse on "failing schools" as measured by high-stakes standardized tests has disproportionately affected students from minoritized communities (such as language, race, class, dis/ability), emphasizing climates of assessment at the expense of broader, more democratic, and…

Salazar, Maria del Carmen – Review of Research in Education, 2013
Students and educators are constrained from finding meaning in the current educational system as a result of the tension between educators' pedagogical practices and systemic constraints, such as high-stakes standardized tests and district-mandated instructional curriculum. Such restrictive educational policies limit educators from developing…

Alim, H. Samy – Review of Research in Education, 2011
This article focuses on the emergence of what the author refers to as "global ill-literacies," that is, the hybrid, transcultural linguistic and literacy practices of Hip Hop youth in local and global contexts, as well as the pedagogical possibilities that scholars open up as they engage these forms. By reviewing a broad but focused range of…

Rymes, Betsy – Review of Research in Education, 2011
In this article, the author outlines two general research approaches, within the education world, to these mass-mediated formations: "Deference" and "Denial." Researchers who recognize the social practices that give local meaning to mass media formations and ways of speaking do not attempt to recontextualize youth media in their own social…

Vasudevan, Lalitha; Campano, Gerald – Review of Research in Education, 2009
Within the past decade, adolescents have become an increasingly scrutinized age group in the United States and abroad. The stereotypical image of youth and of adolescence by extension--as a boisterous embodiment of the "unruly" stage of life between childhood and adulthood--has long dominated discussions about definitions of and subsequent policy…

Larsen-Freeman, Diane; Freeman, Donald – Review of Research in Education, 2008
Language as subject matter is highly protean; it has been defined in various ways in schools, usually as a reflection of predominant images of teaching and learning. Language is also "in, of," and "for" the world. It exists and flourishes "in" the lives and circumstances of its users, created "of" their worlds; it is thus a way of both being in…

The characteristics of contemporary societies are increasingly theorized as global, fluid, and networked.
