Critical Literacy, Schooling, and Social Justice: The Selected Works of Allan Luke
This volume brings together Allan Luke's key writings on literacy and schooling. These chapters document the development and application of a social and cultural analysis of literacy education and schooling, drawing on critical theory, discourse analysis, feminism, postcolonialism and educational sociology. Chapters include an introductory primer on literacy as a social construction, classroom-based case studies of literacy teaching and learning, major theoretical and philosophic essays, practical programmatic work on school reform and enabling curriculum policies, and classroom approaches to teaching critical literacy and multiliteracies. Allan Luke's work on critical literacy, schooling and equity has influenced the fields of literacy education, teacher education, educational sociology and policy for over three decades. His work has spanned the fields of education, applied linguistics, sociology and cultural studies and it has influenced a generation of teachers and teacher educators. Luke's collaborative work on critical literacy, the four resources model, and multiliteracies has helped shape curriculum reform and classroom practice in education systems in North America, East Asia and the Pacific, and the UK. In the World Library of Educationalists, international scholars themselves compile career-long collections of what they judge to be their finest pieces - extracts from books, key articles, salient research findings, major theoretical and/practical contributions - so the world can read them in a single manageable volume. Readers will be able to follow the themes and strands of their work and see their contribution to the development of a field, as well as the development of the field itself. Contributors to the series include: Michael Apple, James A. Banks, Joel Spring, Cortney B. Cazden, William F. Pinar, Stephen J. Ball, Elliot Eisner, Howard Gardner, Ivor F. Goodson, Peter.
