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.

Macías, Reynaldo F. – Review of Research in Education, 2014
The status of a language is very often described and measured by different factors, including the length of time it has been in use in a particular territory, the official recognition it has been given by governmental units, and the number and proportion of speakers. Spanish has a unique history and, so some argue status, in the contemporary…

Winn, Maisha T.; Behizadeh, Nadia – Review of Research in Education, 2011
In this article, the authors provide a selective review of both research and policy represented in part by two concepts that have been discussed in educational research--the "right to learn" and the notion of "literacy as a civil right" and how these issues of access and equity are undermined by the school-to-prison pipeline.…

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.

Gutierrez, Kris D.; Morales, P. Zitlali; Martinez, Danny C. – Review of Research in Education, 2009
Deficit notions about the cognitive potential of individuals from nondominant communities have persisted in social science inquiry, particularly where literacy is concerned. The intellectual trails of current conflicting ideas about literacy can be traced in part to theories about the role of literacy in society. For example, the great divide…

Moje, Elizabeth Birr – Review of Research in Education, 2007
Teaching in socially just ways and in ways that produce social justice requires the recognition that learners need access to the knowledge deemed valuable by the content domains, even as the knowledge they bring to their learning must not only be recognized but valued. In this review, the author revisits that notion of teaching as the fusion of…
