Title: Collaborative Research in Multilingual Classrooms
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847691361
Series Title: Critical Language and Literacy Studies
Description:

Reporting on the research collaborations of a group of teachers, graduate
students and a university professor, this book weaves together their
collective insights about how classrooms might be better for students of
diverse linguistic and cultural backgrounds, abilities and socio-economic
circumstances, and better for teachers as well. It also shows how research
collaborations can result in rich and compelling descriptions of classroom
events. Written in a style accessible to teachers and student teachers, it
introduces sociocultural perpectives on identity, classroom and community
practices, helping and transformative possibilities, using teacher
narratives to reflect the complexity of classroom decision-making and
reflective action.
