Linda Christensen

When I studied how to teach writing and composition with Cindy O’Donnell-Allen at CSU, she introduced us to Linda Christensen’s Teaching for Joy and Justice, a remarkable book that combines philosophy with practice. (Most books on teaching that I’ve come across give either one or the other.) It’s highly recommended for anyone who wants to work within community literacy. I’ve embedded a link in the image above (as well as here) to a page at the National Writing Project website where they talk more about Christensen’s philosophy, offer a brief video with her, and most importantly where they have posted a free chapter from her book, Chapter 5: Language and Power.
