Language, Culture, Identity, and Citizenship in College Classrooms and Communities
This framework reflects an emerging perspective—writing across difference—that challenges the argument that the best writing instructors can do is to develop the skills and knowledge students need to make a successful transition from their home discourses to academic discourses. Instead, the value inherent in the full repertoire of linguistic, cultural, and semiotic resources students use in their varied communities of belonging needs to be acknowledged and students need to be encouraged to call on these to the fullest extent possible in the course of learning what they are being taught in the writing classroom.
Pedagogically, this book provides educators with the rhetorical, discursive, and literacy tools needed to implement this approach. Routledge and NCTE.
