Zancanella, Don; Alsup, Janet – English Education, 2010

Groenke, Susan L. – English Education, 2010
In "Letters to a Young Teacher," Jonathan Kozol (2007) describes the need for teachers to "speak out as witnesses to the injustices they see each day in public schools" (p. 93).

Kirkland, David E. – English Education, 2010
English as taught in city schools does not always reflect the Englishes city students travel with. Their urban English landscape is enriched by a procession of many voices that march in various directions in, around, and through the monuments of the city. These languages--Englishes, in this case--which have been traded on through various public…

Various authors have set forth visions of young people constructing social places for themselves amid…

Hull, Glynda A.; Stornaiuolo, Amy; Sahni, Urvashi – English Education, 2010
Calls now abound in a range of literatures--philosophy, education, sociology, anthropology, media studies--to reimagine citizenship and identity in ways befitting a global age.
