It's Been Said Before

By Orin Hargraves

It's Been Said Before "examines why certain phrases become clichés and why they should be avoided -- or why they still have life left in them."

Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

Book Information


Title: Collaborative Research in Multilingual Classrooms
Written By: Corey Denos
Kelleen Toohey
Kathy Neilson
Bonnie Waterstone
Series Title: Critical Language and Literacy Studies

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.
