None but our words: critical literacy in classroom and community
None But Our Words describes the literacy projects in school and inner city communities that the author has generated over 25 years of teaching, since the Stepney Words affair when he was sacked for publishing an anthology of his East London school students' poems. Their self-organized strike for his reinstatement was the first example of 'cultural action' which had its source in the literacy work Searle was developing in the classroom.
