Encyclopedia of English Language Arts Education

A Critical Perspective

Series: 

How does English language arts (ELA) education relate to power and privilege in education and in schools? How is ELA education situated historically and culturally, in terms of power and privilege? In what ways are learners, categorically and as individuals, situated as decision-makers in ELA education? Over 50 contributors from different perspectives answer these questions by focussing on a variety of topics and terminology broadly related to the teaching of English language arts and the socio-political-cultural context in which this teaching occurs.

This encyclopedia has particular relevance for preservice and practicing ELA teachers, teacher educators, and scholars.
