JOHNS 33 emic contexts. They do not welcome the complexities of literacy; they have a sufficient number of complexities in their lives. For useful discussions of this 'Generation 1. Though Tony and I would agree that we need to take a more critical stance in the EAP literature see Tony's foreword in BeneschI would argue that much of the critical pedagogy literature ignores the central aims articulated by first generation 1.
Critical pedagogues, most of whom are highly educated, encourage critique of the system before the students can understand and negotiate it; they force immediate acknowledgment of students' oppression by the university and the culture, because they, themselves, are often marginalized and oppressed as teachers see Johns Some critical pedagogues call for direct action on the part of the students, action that could, in fact, impede their successful completion of their degrees.
Of course, we can call our students to arms, but what they want, at least in their first years of college, is to get ahead - to succeed in the university they have entered with considerable pride, not to tear it down. I am encouraged by Kress's argument, then, that we should evoke critique but move beyond it, for, not incidentally, critique is all too common, and sometimes crippling, to English departments, and their students, everywhere.
Critique is essential in periods of social stability as a means for producing change; by bringing that which is settled into crisis, it is a means for producing a cultural dynamic. In periods of intense change [such as ours], the problem is that the cultural dynamic is too great, so that critique is not the issue; the focus of intervention [and thus curriculum] has to shift to the design of possible alternatives.
The questions are these: How can we respect, and encourage respect of, difference s among our multilingual, multicultural students within our classrooms?
How can we accept, appreciate, and encourage the generation 1. How can we destabilize the very limited theories of genre that students bring to our classes see Johns yet provide support in learning, using, critiquing and negotiating new genres, especially the genres of power?
How can we encourage these students to appreciate the multi-modal nature of literacy: How can we assist students to 'critically frame' what they have experienced?
To come to terms with 'where they stand in relation to the historical, social, cultural, political, ideological, and value-centered relations of particular systems of knowledge and social practice' Cope and Kalantzis And finally, how can students be encouraged to transform and transfer their practices, to negotiate and manipulate the available designs of meaning?
Respect for difference In the linked classes I have described, the students find it relatively easy to recognize that 'difference is a major resource' Kress JOHNS 35 During the classes, the students read and wrote about difference as constructed by anthropologists: They discussed anthropological concepts: To augment their understanding and provide empowering experiences for the students we involved them in a community-based service learning effort during which they visited and interviewed 9th grade year-old secondary school students from a variety of cultures about cultural and linguistic persistence in their families.
These interactions became part of a final paper and multimodal exposition at the secondary school see Johns Thus, we had a number of opportunities to appreciate and discuss the diverse nature of our immediate worlds — and to use academic concepts and texts to write about this diversity.
Comfort and success A second goal was to acknowledge the students' academic and personal needs and expectations while encouraging them to succeed in our foreign, and sometimes hostile, academic culture. The secondary school students' cultures, which our students explored through interviews, were different from their own, yet in many cases closer to our students' experiences than were the academic cultures of the university.
However, anthropology helped them to understand university cultures too, for they could examine and critically frame the university as a cluster of cultures, with values, texts, and general 'ways of being' as realized in their spoken and written genres.
In their other classes, students also investigated university cultures. They were encouraged by their University Seminar teachers to interview older students from similar socioeconomic backgrounds about the demands and values of their majors, and to question their instructors about what they wrote and read — and about the lives they led as academics.All Essay Planet.
