Product Description


• Provides both theoretical insight and practical knowledge

• Assists parents and educators in developing a critical understanding of issues related to gender and literacy beyond the popular rhetoric surrounding "boys and reading"

• Introduces readers to a comprehensive review of empirical studies investigating gendered discourse practices

• Examines the complex issues of gender and literacy through various theoretical lenses

Book Description

To the degree that gender is socially constructed and performative, language remains a primary means through which individuals conceive of themselves as gendered beings, and through which each person structures and performs gendered relations with others. This handbook provides a critical review of contemporary and foundational studies in gender and literacy to uncover how human potential is determined by our habits and assumptions regarding gender—and how our literacy practices often work to maintain those habits of action.
