Product Description

Review

Champion's book is appealing to scholars of critical language studies for its apt incorporation of post-positivist, qualitative research methodology, its interdisciplinary approach, and its consideration of how narrative production in children may be shaped by larger socio-historical and cultural contexts.
Studies: International Journal

The stories children tell are appreciated in their communities, and when brought to school, must be valued for their complexity and creativity. Champion finds a mismatch between the children's home and school linguistic backgrounds. She gives three examples where high teacher expectations and a culturally appropriate pedagogy helped African American children perform better academically. This is important information for all teachers.
