Product description

At a time when popularizers of cultural literacy are prescribing a cultural canon for the purpose of prying open the closed minds' of American youth . . . Literacy provides an articulate and courageous response. "Harvard Educational Review" Every chapter . . . asks teachers to thing again about how they teach, what they want for their pupils, and how to get on with it. "Times Educational Supplement" [This] book directs our attention to literacy in its broadest sense so that we can better evaluate the shortcomings of our work as educators at all levels of learning. "Contemporary Sociology"
