Abstract:

This book describes how social identification and academic learning can 
deeply depend on each other, through a theoretical account of the two 
processes and a detailed empirical analysis of how students' identities 
emerged and how students learned curriculum in one classroom. The book 
traces the identity development of two students across an academic year, 
showing how they developed unexpected identities in substantial part 
because curricular themes provided categories that teachers and students 
used to identify them and showing how students learned about curricular 
themes in part because the two students were socially identified in ways 
that illuminated those themes. The book's distinctive contribution is to 
demonstrate in detail how social identification and academic learning can 
become deeply interdependent.
