An effort to contribute to the "story" of English teaching in the United States at the dawn of the new millennium, this book presents 17 essays that tell diverse and complex stories of the value and difficulty of teaching English. The voices in this volume represent an eclectic rather than a comprehensive group of teachers and scholars, some familiar, some perhaps less so, who draw from their experiences in secondary and postsecondary English classrooms to examine the question of the relevance of their work to the lives of their students. After an introduction: "The (Ir)relevance of English at the Turn of the Millennium" (Robert P. Yagelski), essays in Section I, Contexts: American Culture and the Study of English, are: (1) "The Academic Language Gap" (Gerald Graff); (2) "When the Multicultural Leaves the Race: Some Common Terms Reconsidered" (Victor Villanueva); (3) "It's Not an Economy, Stupid! The Education-as-Product Metaphor as Viewed from the English Classroom" (Scott A. Leonard); (4) "Literacy, Gender, and Adolescence: School-Sponsored English as Identity Maintenance" (Margaret J. Finders); (5) "On the Business of English Studies" (Stephen M. North); and "Exchange: Economies, Politics, and English Studies" (Finders, North, Leonard, and Villanueva). Essays in Section II, Changes: English Classrooms in an Evolving World, are: (6) "The High School English Teacher: A Relevant Member in a Good Tribe" (Donald L. Tinney); (7) "Promoting a Relevant Classroom Literacy: Personal Growth and Communal Action in a Middle Grades Curricular Development Project" (Sarah Robbins, with Mary Miesiaszek and Beth Davis); (8) "Women in Mind: The Culture of First-Year English and the Nontraditional Returning Woman Student" (Patricia Shelley Fox); (9) "Community College English: Diverse Backgrounds, Diverse Needs" (Kathleen R. Cheney); (10) "The Relevance of Paulo Freire on Liberatory Dialogue and Writing in the Classroom" (Christina Kirklighter); (11) "Surviving Intact: African American Women Negotiating Scholarly Identities through Graduate School Writing" (Juanita Rodgers Comfort); and "Exchange: Literacy, Classrooms, and Students' Lives" (Fox, Tinney, Kirklighter, Cheney, Robbins, Comfort). Essays in Section III, Futures: English Studies for the New Millennium, are: (12) "The Future of English Studies Made Personal, or, The Subversive Act of Teaching Well" (Valerie Hardin Drye); (13) "Cybrarians and Scholars in the New English Classroom" (Ted Nellen); (14) "The Past and Future of (Two-Year) College English Studies" (Mark Reynolds); (15) "Enacting Cultures: The Practice of Comparative Cultural Study" (Paula Mathieu and James J. Sosnoski); (16) "Critical Technological Literacy and English Studies: Teaching, Learning, and Action" (Richard J. Selfe and Cynthia L. Selfe); (17) "The Plural Commons: Meeting the Future of English Studies" (Kathleen Blake Yancey); and "Exchange: Language, Technology, and the Future of English Studies" (Drye, Reynolds, Mathieu, Sosnoski, R. Selfe, and Yancey). Contains an afterword by Richard M. Ohmann. (RS).

Student understanding is enhanced through an exceptionally clear writing style, and by leaving out or relegating to appendices complex topics more appropriate for a Principles of Economics course.

There are four types of capital: economic, human, cultural, and social. The distribution of capital in home and school settings affects the types of educational outcomes and the quality of lifelong opportunities that individuals are able to enjoy. Resource availability and accessibility influence the success levels at which teaching and learning is experienced. Capital possession or acquisition impacts the ability to navigate the academic pipeline and to recognize the appropriate tools by which to do so. Minimal attempts have been taken to address different perspectives related to economic, human, cultural, and social capital. This book identifies the various tenets of capital as having shared similarities and/or differences, as well as reveals how the distribution of capital impacts educational settings. More specifically, this book reveals that given the increases in the parental education or the cultural capital of African Americans, no significant changes have occurred in the number of years that African-American children attend schools. This finding remains consistent in terms of the sort of cultural capital that they are able to gain. In sum, the research concludes that cultural capital does assume a significant role in the transfer of advantages that stem from middle- and upper-level socioeconomic backgrounds.

Public and private higher education boards of control rightfully demand that higher education policies reflect rational and systematic approaches to the future. Thinking and planning ahead of major post-secondary issues and problems, therefore, becomes incumbent upon chief executive officers and their staffs in all types of colleges and universities. US educational officials planned more seriously in the 70s when resources were diminishing than in the 80s when several years of unprecendented sustained economic growth provided greater flexibility and use of ongoing and new human and material resources. But a return to leaner years can be expected in the 1990s, and with it, a greater emphasis on planning ahead.

This book presents the current state of knowledge on autobiographical memory. It begins by defining the topic and reviewing the early research including that by Bartlett, Freud and Galton. It moves on to consider the role of chronology; the relationship between the self and autobiographical memory; and how we retrieve it. It then explores how autobiographical memory develops in children, how it declines in old age, and how it can be impaired in, for instance the clinically depressed. Finally, the author draws together the various aspects of theory outlined, attempts to synthesize these into a summary model, and poses questions for future research.
