Jim Gee's latest book is out
Jim's latest book, Situated Language and Learning: A Critique of Traditional Schooling, is another good read. My current favourite bit in the book is his gentle but nonetheless keen-edged critique of "community of learners" approaches to learning and classroom practice. In its place he develops an earlier concept of his, "affinity groups" into "affinity spaces" which is proving to be really useful in our current work on weblogs for explaining different purposes served by blogs.
