"Full of advice and support for walking hand-in-hand with students into imaginative ways of understanding the realities of language variation, this book is pure joy for teachers and college counselors. Even more important is the guarantee that when these educators embrace the humanity and philosophy so touchingly illustrated by the authors, the intrigue of thinking deeply about speaking, writing, and reading is sure to follow for students."
--Shirley Brice Heath, Margery Bailey Professor of English & Dramatic Literature and Professor of Linguistics, Emerita, Stanford University
"We Do Language is refreshingly different, as now educators are shown how to value their own language variation and draw on their own linguistic identities as teaching resources. ... This book affirms and supports educators and African American students, their language, and their culture. I can't thank the authors enough for writing this powerfully thoughtful, thought provoking, and critical analysis of language variation."
--Donna Ford, Harvie Branscomb Distinguished Professor of Special Education & Teaching and Learning, Peabody College of Education, Vanderbilt University
From the Back Cover
"We Do Language is a theoretically well-grounded resource that is also accessible, practical, and adaptable as a tool for bringing success more deliberately to scale, and offers a provocative and invaluable paradigm for this process. This book is an enabling tool for helping teachers and those who prepare them to face--perhaps better than we ever have--the challenge of schooling in the English/language arts for the 21st century."
--Jacqueline Jones Royster, Ivan Allen Chair in Liberal Arts and Technology and Dean, Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts, Georgia Institute of Technology
