With Literacy & Justice For Al : Rethinking the Social in Language and Education
This volume presents analyses of educational and research practices with the first part highlighting bilingual education (the language strengths of minority children), and the second part focusing on whole language (theoretical assumptions, possibilities and limitations), and progressive ways of evaluating students. The book concludes by re-iterating the socio-political nature of literacy, of whole language, and, by implication, of educational and language practices.

Table of contents
Introduction: What's a progressive book like you doing in a post-modern world like this? Part 1 Not acquiring Spanish as a second language - the politics of second language acquisition: writing in a bi-lingual programme - it all depends; contextual complexities - written language policies for bilingual programmes; the effect of "theory" on several versions of a popular theory - "plus ca change, plus c'est la meme chose". Part 2 Literacy - some purposeful distinctions: whole language - what's new?; hookin' 'em in at the start of school in a whole language classroom; risks and possibilities of whole language literacy - alienation and connection; resisting (professional) arrest; whole language - making it a whole lot better.
