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: Social Justice Language Teacher Education
Edited By: Margaret R. Hawkins
URL: http://www.multilingual-matters.com/display.asp?isb=9781847694225
Series Title: Bilingual Education and Bilingualism
Description:

Social justice language teacher education is a response to the
acknowledgement that there are social/societal inequities that shape access to
learning and educational achievement. In social justice language teacher
education, social justice is the driving force and primary organizational device
for the teacher education agenda. What does “social justice” mean in diverse
global locations? What role does English play in promoting or denying equity?
How can teachers come to see themselves as advocates for equal educational
access and opportunity? This volume begins by articulating a view of social
justice teacher education, followed by language teacher educators from 7
countries offering theorized accounts of their situated practices. Authors
discuss powerful components of practice, and the challenges and tensions of
doing this work within situated societal and institutional power structures.
