Title: English Language Teachers on the Discursive Faultlines
Subtitle: Identities, Ideologies and Pedagogies
Series Title: New Perspectives on Language and Education
Publisher: Multilingual Matters
This book brings the voices of teachers into the fierce debates about language ideologies and cultural pedagogies in English language teaching. Through interviews and classroom observations in Chile and California, this study compares the controversies around English as a global language with the similar cultural tensions in programs for immigrants. The author explores the development of teacher identity in these two very different contexts, and through the narratives of both experienced and novice teachers demonstrates how teacher identity affects the cultural pedagogies enacted in their classrooms.
