Summary In Literacy, Not Labels, Kathleen Strickland shares her experience teaching and researching in a special education whole language classroom. She describes students with a record of failure - each one with a label ranging from "learning disabled" to "educably retarded," each one capable of language learning but previously deprived of the opportunity. Her book explains how she and the teacher discovered ways to support the students' growth as readers and writers, celebrating with them as they found a place for literacy in their lives
