Auteur: Walcott, William H.
Titel: Knowledge, Competence and Communication
Sub titel: Chomsky, Freire and the Communicative Movement
It is not enough to simply have knowledge: one needs to understand what one knows and be able to communicate it. This ability to communicate what one knows is what determines 'competence.' But there are different philosophical, as well as linguistic, routes to communicative competence, and the principal goal of this work is to examine, and assess, some of the current and most popular approaches toward linguistics. In Knowledge, Competence, and Communication, author William H. Walcott debates the meaning of creating equitable and critical instructional practices by exploring diverse representations of knowledge. He covers both historically important topics and current issues, such as, colonialism, multi-culturalism, gender and language learning, and popular culture. He then presents a systematic and painstaking assessment of Noam Chomsky's and Paulo Freire's theories of knowledge and their educational relevance.
