National Center for the Study of Writing and Literacy Occasional Paper    

OP 23. Changing Views of Language in Education and the Implications for Literacy Research: An Intera

By Jenny Cook-Gumperz, John J. Gumperz

Summary: This paper discusses the ways in which language has entered into studies in education over the past three decades. The authors suggest that an interactional sociolinguistic perspective, where language in the classroom is seen not just as an abstract grammatical and semantic system but as a process of verbal communication that includes culture-bound and contextual knowledge, has a special usefulness for literacy research. December, 1990; 22 pages.
