New Book: Classroom Literacy & Public Engagement
Posted by on May 6, 2005
CLASSROOM LITERACY & PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT
A new book, edited by Sarah Robbins and Mimi Dyer, underscores the connections between teacher professional growth and classroom reform and tells a story of pedagogical adventures for students and teachers alike. Each chapter presents a narrative of innovation, documenting collaboration between classroom and community that gives immediate and obvious relevance to the learning process. The volume also documents an important model of professional development that has relevancy across disciplinary and grade level lines. The volume, writes Rachel Ragland, emphasizes the role writing can play in creating communities; the power of authentic professional experiences and professional collaboration; the potential inherent in cross-level, interdisciplinary study of community life; and the need to view research as open-ended inquiry using a wide range of methods to study diverse cultural artifacts.
