Sociocultural Approaches to Language and Literacy by Vera John-Steiner

Book Description

One of the most crucial areas of education - the development of oral language and the acquisition of literacy - is examined here with an effective combination of theory and practice. The sociocultural perspective is illustrated through descriptions of learning by populations usually neglected in treatments of literacy: American Sign Language Users, second-language speakers and minority students. The book covers a broad range of ages, ethnic backgrounds, locations, and literacy concerns from pre-school to law school. Although the populations and literacy issues are diverse, the book's unity is provided by a broadly shared theoretical framework. As such, Interactionist Approaches to Language and Literacy will be valuable to educators at every level and to researchers in applied linguistics, psychology, adult literacy programs, and English as a second language.

Describes the hidden human, emotional, and social forces that shape mathematics and affect the experiences of students and mathematicians. This book is suitable for those who want to understand why the most rational of human endeavors is at the same time one of the most emotional.

Creative Collaboration by Vera John-Steiner Creative Collaboration, Paperback (August 2006)

What is the true nature of thinking? Can it best be understood as a solitary activity of a lone individual? This book suggests that our grasp of creativity is impoverished because we fail to recognise the vital roles that partnerships, collaborations, friendships, and communities play in our thinking, learning, and understanding.

Creativity and Development by Vera John-Steiner Creativity and Development, Paperback (August 2003)

What is creativity, and where does it come from? Creativity and Development explores the connections and tensions among creativity research and developmental psychology, two fields that, for a long time, have largely progressed independently of each other.

Notebooks of the Mind by Vera John-Steiner Notebooks of the Mind, Paperback (February 1997)

An account of the human mind that uses a combination of personal accounts and laboratory studies of thought process to cover topics such as the importance of childhood mentor figures; the lengthy apprenticeship of the talented person; and the development of self-expression.
