Reading Comprehension Research and Testing in the U.S. - Undercurrents of Race, Class, and Power in the Struggle for Meaning... Reading Comprehension Research and Testing in the U.S. - Undercurrents of Race, Class, and Power in the Struggle for Meaning (Hardcover)
Arlette Ingram Willis
R3,147 Discovery Miles 31 470 Special order

This book challenges traditional, sanctioned, and official histories of reading comprehension by examining how ideological and cultural hegemony work to reproduce dominant ideologies through education in general and reading comprehension research and testing specifically. Willis analyzes the ideological and cultural foundations that underpin concepts, theories, research, tests, and interpretations, and connects these to the broader social and political contexts within U.S. history in which reading comprehension research and testing have evolved. The reconstruction of a history of reading comprehension research and testing in this way demystifies past and current assumptions about the interconnections among researchers, reading comprehension research, and standardized reading comprehension tests. A promising vision of the future of reading comprehension research and testing emerges-one that is more complex, multidimensional, inclusive, and socially just.
"Reading Comprehension Research andTesting in the U.S. "aims to revolutionize how reading comprehension is conceived, theorized, tested, and interpreted for all children. This is a critically relevant volume for educational researchers, teacher educators, school administrators, teachers, policy makers, and all those concerned with school literacy and educational equity.

Multiple and intersecting Identities in Qualitative Research (Hardcover): Betty Merchant, Arlette Ingram Willis Multiple and intersecting Identities in Qualitative Research (Hardcover)
Betty Merchant, Arlette Ingram Willis
R3,209 Discovery Miles 32 090 Special order

This book extends the current discourse on the role of cultural knowledge in qualitative research, especially research conducted by women of color within their own community. Each author reports on her attempts to conceptualize herself as a researcher while simultaneously trying to honor her cultural connectedness and knowledge.
As women researchers analyzing the personal and professional contexts in which their research was conducted, the authors argue that their gender, race, religion, and status have played critical roles in their research agendas. They offer a female perspective, though not a feminist critique per se, for they believe that gender does play a significant role in their research efforts. Equally important, they explore the role that race has played in their research, whether as women of color or white women conducting research among people of color.
In reflecting on how their unique positionality allows them to understand relationships across many boundaries, the authors observe how, in most cases, because of their position as women and/or people of color, they have not had some of the traditional problems associated with access to multicultural sites. However, they have encountered other issues and they share how, as researchers, they met and resolved these issues for their particular settings. Each author also discusses how, in addressing these issues, she labored to meet the standards of academia, often at a personal cost.
This book challenges existing paradigms by questioning the assumption of objectivity in research. It is essential reading--informative, provocative, and engaging--for researchers and students in research methods, women's studies, critical theory, and cross-cultural studies.

On Critically Conscious Research - Approaches to Language and Literacy Research (Paperback): Arlette Ingram Willis, Mary... On Critically Conscious Research - Approaches to Language and Literacy Research (Paperback)
Arlette Ingram Willis, Mary Montavon, Catherine Hunter, Helena Hall
R685 Discovery Miles 6 850 Special order

This provocative new title in the ""NCRLL Collection"" is a call to action for new and experienced scholars to examine their bias and adopt a more critically conscious stance in their work. Balancing an historical grounding with contemporary research, this book focuses on how critical theories are manifested in language and literacy research. The authors discuss critical consciousnesses in various places, at various times in the world, and at varying levels in language and literacy research. They examine some overlooked roots and routes to present-day critical thinking and predict how branches of theorizing may emerge, evolve, and transform research in a democratic society.
