Sociolinguistics from the Periphery

By Sari Pietikäinen, Alexandra Jaffe, Helen Kelly-Holmes, Nik Coupland

Sociolinguistics from the Periphery "presents a fascinating book about change: shifting political, economic and cultural conditions; ephemeral, sometimes even seasonal, multilingualism; and altered imaginaries for minority and indigenous languages and their users"

Title: Teacher Collaboration and Talk in Multilingual Classrooms
Written By: Angela Creese
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/multi/results.asp?TAG=&CID=&search_field_01=keyword%2Cfulltext&S
Series Title: Bilingual Education & Bilingualism
Description:

This volume looks at the interactions of collaborating teachers in
multilingual classrooms and how these impact on what counts as knowledge in
the secondary school classroom. It also looks at how policy statements and
ideologies around multilingualism position teachers and learners in
particular ways. A linguistic ethnographic approach is taken in the study,
which considers the discourses of whole class and small group teaching and
learning. Chapters consider the relation between different languages,
different pedagogues and different teacher identities in the secondary
school classroom. The book documents how a policy of inclusion is played
out in practice.


Review:
"This highly topical book offers a critical analysis of collaboration
between English as an additional language (EAL) teachers and subject
teachers in schools. Angela Creese raises important questions about how
issues of power and positioning affect the implementation of educational
policy for bilingual children, and about how diversity is viewed in English
schools. This excellent book will be of immense value to teachers,
researchers and policy-makers." Dr Adrian Blackledge, Senior Lecturer,
School of Education, University of Birmingham.
