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: Code Choice in the Language Classroom
Written By: Glenn S. Levine
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847693327
Description:

"Code Choice in the Language Classroom" argues that the foreign language
classroom is and should be regarded as a multilingual community of practice
rather than as a perpetually deficient imitator of an exclusive
second-language environment. From a sociocultural and ecological
perspective, Levine guides the reader through a theoretical, empirical, and
pedagogical treatment of the important roles of the first language, and of
code-switching practices, in the language classroom. Intended for SLA
researchers, language teachers, language program directors, and graduate
students of foreign languages and literatures, the book develops a
framework for thinking about all aspects of code choice in the language
classroom and offers concrete proposals for designing and carrying out
instruction in a multilingual classroom community of practice.
