Series Title: Critical Language and Literacy Studies
Description:

Style, Identity and Literacy: English in Singapore is a qualitative study of the
literacy practices of a group of Singaporean adolescents, relating their patterns
of interaction – both inside and outside the classroom – to the different levels of
social organization in Singaporean society (home, peer group and school).
Combining field data gathered through a series of detailed interviews with
available classroom observations, the study focuses on six adolescents from
different ethnic and social backgrounds as they negotiate the learning of English
against the backdrop of multilingual Singapore. This book provides social
explanations for the difficulties and challenges these adolescents face by
drawing on current developments in sociolinguistics, literacy studies, English
language teaching and language policy.
