This represents a multidisciplinary collaboration that highlights the significance of Mikhail Bakhtin’s theories to modern scholarship in the field of language and literacy. Book chapters examine such important questions as: What resources do students bring from their home/community environments that help them become literate in school? What knowledge do teachers need in order to meet the literacy needs of varied students? How can teacher educators and professional development programs better understand teachers?needs and help them to become better prepared to teach diverse literacy learners? What challenges lie ahead for literacy learners in the coming century? Chapters are contributed by scholars who write from varied disciplinary perspectives. In addition, other scholarly voices enter into a Bakhtinian dialogue with these scholars about their ideas. These ‘other voices?help our readers push the boundaries of current thinking on Bakhtinian theory and make this book a model of heteroglossia and dialogic intertexuality. ?Chapter are written by Bakhtinian scholar Gary Saul Morson as well as other scholars well known in the fields of English, education and linguistics ?This book shows how Bakhtinian theory can be used to guide research and practice in the field of language and literacy studies ?The goal of the volume is to push the boundaries of current thinking on Bakhtinian theory Contents Part I. Ideologies in Dialogue: Theoretical Considerations: 1. Ideological becoming: Bahktinian concepts to guide the study of language, literacy and learning; 2. Dewey and Bakhtin in dialogue: from Rosenblatt to a pedagogy of literature as a social, aesthetic practice; 3. Intertextualities: Volosinov, Bakhtin, literacy theory, and literacy studies; 4.

Language Acquisition and Learnability, Stefano Bertolo (ed.)
4 Language Acquisition and Learnability

Stefano Bertolo (ed.)

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK, 2001, 0-521-646200 / 9780521646208, First Edition, Paperback, New, 
Language Acquisition and Learnability is an accessible introduction to learnability theory and its interactions with linguistic theories. Working within the Principles and Parameters framework, the book surveys general concepts from formal learning theory and complexity theory, together with important findings from developmental psycholinguistics, historical linguistics and language processing. Written by a team of leading researchers it examines important techniques that can be used to obtain interesting and empirically testable predictions from parametric theories of language variation and includes chapters on syntax, diachronic syntax and the relationship between linguistic complexity and the form of parameters. Fully integrated, and complete with a large number of exercises to test readers on their understanding of the material, this book will become essential reading for students and researchers in linguistic theory. Contents 1. A brief overview of learnability S. Bertolo; 2. Learnability and the acquisition of syntax M. Atkinson; 3. Language change and learnability I. Roberts; 4. Information theory, complexity and linguistic descriptions R. Clark; 5. The structural triggers learner W. G. Sakas and J. D. Fodor. Printed Pages: 256 with 7 line diagrams and 12 tables. 008639

6 The Psychology of Reading

Eleanor J. Gibson and Harry Levin

The MIT Press, Cambridge, Massachussets, USA, 1975, 0-262-07063-4 / 9780262070638, First Edition, Hard Cover, New, Fair, 6 x 9 Inches 
In this book, two psychologists apply principles of cognitive psychology to understanding reading. Unlike most other books on the subject, this one presents a consistent theoretical point of view and applies it to the acquisition of reading and what the skilled reader does. The first part of The Psychology of Reading covers perceptual learning, the development of cognitive strategies, the development of language, the nature of writing systems, and an extensive review of the research on word recognition. In the second part of the book, the authors look closely at abilities that children bring to school before learning to read. They describe the acquisition of initial reading skills and transition to skilled reading, the nature of the reading process in adult readers, and the ways people learn from reading. The book's third part takes up questions people frequently ask about reading -- such as reading by deaf children, dyslexia, the influence of nonstandard dialects on learning to read, comparison of reading achievement across different nations and different languages, and the debatable virtues of "speed reading." The authors conclude that reading cannot be understood simply as associative learning -- that is, the learning of an arbitrary code connecting written symbols and their sounds. Reading involves higher-level mental processes such as the discovery of rules and order, and the extraction of structured, meaningful information. Printed Pages: 630. 005384
