This is the first book to focus exclusively on an examination of early 21st-century adult reading aloud. The dominant contemporary image of reading in much of the world is that of a silent, solitary activity. This book challenges this dominant discourse, acknowledging the diversity of reading practices that adults perform or experience in different communities, languages, contexts and phases of our lives, outlining potential educational implications and next steps for literacy teaching and research. By documenting and analysing the diversity of oral reading practices that adults take part in (on- and offline), this book explores contemporary reading aloud as hugely varied, often invisible and yet quietly ubiquitous. Duncan discusses questions such as: What, where, how and why do adults read aloud, or listen to others reading? How do couples, families and groups use oral reading as a way of being together? When and why do adults read aloud at work? And why do some people read aloud in languages they may not speak or understand? This book is key reading for advanced students, researchers and scholars of literacy practices and literacy education within education, applied linguistics and related areas.

Does literature serve a humanizing function? Can it achieve social transformation? What roles does literature play for defining self, creating community, and achieving global perspective? This is the first book to thoroughly explore the methods by which educators, creative writers, and policymakers have constructed workable models of teaching literature in multicultural classrooms. The authors provide an interdisciplinary dialogue on the setbacks, solutions, silences, and successes that often occur in classes of multicultural literature. They all take the stance that definitions of literacy and literature originate as much outside the classroom as within it. With the inclusion of essays by writers themselves--a feature provided by no other book on this subject--the authors offer a unique vocalization of the nationalistic, economic, empowering, and moral purposes that reading and writing serve. The book also includes a current guide to selected resources in multicultural literature, in hopes of encouraging and facilitating instructors in the transformation of their own literature courses into multicultural ones.

These profoundly courageous teachers and researchers will be an inspiration to others . . . . They work to offer opportunities for their students to grow as competent and complete individuals accepting responsibility for the society in which they live. - Cecily O'Neill Students are often asked to imagine themselves into the shoes of another person - an historical figure, a literary character, a contemporary political or social figure - then to consider life from that person's perspective. But what if they could really step into that person's life? Experience different conditions? Make decisions based on someone else's biases, knowledge, and intuition? With process drama they can, and Process Drama and Multiple Literacies will show you how. Process Drama and Multiple Literacies takes you inside nine classrooms where process drama successfully taps students' multiple literacies, integrates content from across the curricular areas, and develops students' social and critical awareness. These classrooms span a wide range of ages, and their stories will show you how this technique allows students to view the world from multiple perspectives by involving them in situations where they must make informed decisions. And far from simple classroom plays, process dramas are conceived and enacted by students in response to the issues and questions raised by content in the curriculum and by the world. Backed by research, filled with smart ideas for introducing process drama into your teaching, and illustrative of a variety of classrooms and process-drama projects, Process Drama and Multiple Literacies will help your students see the world through different eyes.

This reader encourages students to explore the relationship between literacy and technology and the implications of that relationship on their culture and on their own lives at a time of rapid social and technological change. With an innovative perspective, Literacies and Technologies addresses the topic of "technology" broadly, highlighting the important relationships between technology and literacy at a time when technology is profoundly changing how we read and write. Yagelski includes all aspects of technology as they pertain to writing-from the pencil to the printing press to Internet publishing-and offers a historical perspective on recent technological developments, especially related to the computer and the Internet. The analytic framework of this book encourages readers to view literacy as encompassing the ability to engage the world through written communication, a way of using writing and reading to reflect on, understand, and act in the world. Technology refers to tools and systems created for this purpose. Thus technology includes literacy itself, as literacy is a system that helps to construct, create and function in the world. Thought-provoking readings and exercises are included through out the book, providing opportunities for readers to improve their reflective and analytic literacies. For anyone interested in developing skills in writing, reading and critical thinking while exploring a new perspective on technology.

"Using a dialogue format, contributors to this collection of essays outline key issues in the cultural history of medieval women. Many of the essays in this volume provide compelling evidence that women in Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages achieved an accomplished form of literacy, and became actively involved in literary networks of textual production and exchange. These essays also present new research on questions of the literacy and authorship of historical women. In so doing they demonstrate that medieval women, like many medieval men, did not read in isolation, but were surrounded and assisted by both male and female colleagues...Voices in Dialogue challenges the historical and literary work of modern medieval scholars by questioning traditionally accepted evidence, methodologies, and conclusions. It will push those engaged in the field of medieval studies to reflect upon the manner in which they conceive, write, and teach history, as it urges them to situate historical women prominently within the intellectual and spiritual culture of the Middle Ages." -- Book jacket.
