Literacy and Empowerment: The Meaning Makers

Synopsis

Courts argues that while by society's standards many people can read well, they are unable to create meaning from the world of oral and written language. His theory derives from psycho- and sociolinguistics, cognitive psychology, philosophy, literary criticism, and "whole language" theory. Courts criticizes programmed activities, texts, and workbooks--challenging the control that commercial textbook publishers and test-makers exert on education. He shuns overemphasis on methods, and offers an alternative approach firmly grounded in theory and aimed at empowering teachers and students.
