Summary: Featuring contributions from a stellar group of teachers and researchers, this volume opens new territory on a critical but rarely addressed topic--the intersection of race with literacy research and practice. Grounded in classroom experiences, this insightful volume:

    racism that is pervasive in and out of schools.
  • Develops authentic knowledge of teaching and learning practices to insure that student and teacher voices are heard.
  • Considers the ethics of research agendas and the consequences of their findings, discussing the importance of research in addressing issues of racial inequality in school literacy achievement.
  • Details the value of the research process itself, coming to terms with the researcher's aims, audiences, and their responsibilities as potential agents of change.
