Graham, Steve – Review of Research in Education, 2019
If students are to be successful in school, at work, and in their personal lives, they must learn to write. This requires that they receive adequate practice and instruction in writing, as this complex skill does not develop naturally. A basic goal of schooling then is to teach students to use this versatile tool effectively and flexibly. Many…

Fitzgerald, Miranda Suzanne; Palincsar, Annemarie Sullivan – Review of Research in Education, 2019
"Sensemaking" entails being active, self-conscious, motivated, and purposeful in the world.

In this chapter, we contrast "everyday sensemaking" with "academic sensemaking"…

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
