Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."

Title: Gendered Identities and Immigrant Language Learning
Written By: Julia Menard-Warwick
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847692139
Series Title: Critical Language and Literacy Studies
Description:

Based on participant observation in a California English as a Second
Language family literacy program, this ethnographic study examines how the
complexly gendered life histories of immigrant adults shaped their
participation in both the English language classroom and the education of
their children, within the contemporary sociohistorical context of
increasing Latin American immigration to the United States. Through
outlining the connections between (gendered) identity work and language
learning, this study builds theoretical and empirical justification for
teachers to negotiate classroom practice with each community of learners,
responding to students' individual goals, histories, and lives outside the
classroom.
