Critical Literacies in the Classroom: Collaborative Works

Some brief overview of book

Critical Literacies in Schools and Classrooms is a series of case study windows into students and teachers, children and youth working at the construction of literacies in classroom, school and community settings. The cases are used to explore, expand and illustrate foundational and theoretically rich dimensions of how literacy is shaped and constructed, by whom, in whose interests and with what consequences. They draw upon a host of critical theories, ranging from the work of feminist and postcolonial theorists, to the work of Foucault and Bourdieu, consistently breaking new ground for the framing and understanding of literacy teaching and learning.

The cases are also used to make the case for critical literacies across the curriculum - as an essential component in the education of young people from communities that have been economically and culturally marginalized. Together with its two companion volumes, Critical Literacy, Schooling and Social Justice: Collected Writings and Educational Policy, Narrative and Discourse: Key Writings, Allan Luke's seminal key writings spanning the fields of education, applied linguistics, sociology and cultural studies is now readily accessible to scholars, students, teachers, and teacher educators around the world.
