Abstract:
			
Identity and the Young English Language Learner by Elaine Mellen
Day,(Simon Fraser University)

Key Features 
Makes a significant contribution to the body of
literature on language socialization in educational contexts. 
Pays attention to young learners, a neglected area of research

Description 
This longitudinal, ethnographic case study examines the language
socialization experiences of Hari, a Punjabi-speaking English language
learner integrated in a mainstream kindergarten classroom in an urban
area of British Columbia, Canada. The study uses sociocultural and
critical/poststructural theoretical perspectives to explore the
intimate connection between learning, identity and social membership
in Hari's learning path. The book highlights the political and
affective dynamics of classroom relationships and their unconscious as
well as conscious dimensions and should be of interest to all
researchers, students, and educators involved with minority language
children in educational contexts.
