[Xmca-l] Re: Psychology of Language



Hi Laure,

In general I'm also in favor of dispersed readings. In addition, in my course in child development I've been writing the textbook that I need!  It is (currently) titled "A Cultural Psychology of Children’s Development." But this is a new course that I need to get up and running quickly, so I think I need to start with an existing text. If one exists!

Hi Martin,

We are teaching a similar course here at CNAM, Paris. But in French... and no textbook, we suggest and comment dispersed readings. Would you send me your syllabus ? I would be very happy to compare (our plan is in French, if you read French, I'll be happy to share).
Also interested to see if you get some answers regarding the text book.
If not: why wouldn't we edit this textbook that we need ?
Cheers
LK

Hi Bella,

Thanks, but what I'm looking for is a text on the role of language in psychology. I'm teaching a course that when last taught used this text, which was published in 1998. I'd like something more contemporary, and more aligned with a sociocultural perspective:
