Dyson, Anne Haas – English Education, 2010
Language is more than a means of representing and communicating ideas. It is subject to one's values and beliefs about language and people. For this reason, it is also a means of constructing an identity, a place of belonging in a complex world. Various authors have set forth visions of young people constructing social places for themselves amid…

Teacher-written editorial columns in local newspapers can challenge the broad, simplistic conceptions of the profession that have been encouraged by contemporary politics and that obscure the real work of teachers.

Ericsson, Patricia Freitag – English Education, 2005
The educational enterprise is awash in standards, but little attention is paid to what the term really means. Without carefully crafted, widely accepted definitions of standards, standards projects are rife with problems and frequently fail. The absence of careful definitions typically leads to confusion, rejection of standards, and can actually…

In this…

Of course, NCLB will not directly produce any civilian casualties or smashed buildings, but the political strategies used to roll it out have been eerily similar to those used in the war against terrorism. Disturbing rates of…
