Cross-cultural Literacy : Ethnographies of Communication in Multiethnic Classrooms Hardback

Edited by Steven F. Arvizu, Marietta (CUNY, USA) Saravia-Shore

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Literacy series

Description

Originally published in 1992. This book advocates and demonstrates the benefits of an anthropological approach that recognizes the centrality of culture in the educational process.

This approach encompasses knowledge and understanding of other cultures' patterns of interaction, values, institutions, metaphors and symbols as well as cross-cultural communication skills.

Ethnographic studies of multi-ethnic classrooms and schools in their community context are presented in this excellent volume with a view to informing practice and policy concerning the education of language minority students and teachers, and anyone with an interest in foreign language education and bilingual education.
