Abstract:
			
This text brings together two significant domains of educational
practice: foreign language education and critical pedagogy--linking
them in a way that can help foreign language educators develop a
critical awareness of the nature, purposes, and challenges facing
foreign language pedagogy. Unique among texts in the field, this is
the first to deal explicitly with the social, political, ideological,
and economic aspects of language, language learning, and language
teaching in our society and to connect the practice of foreign
language education with these critical, and crucial, aspects of
language and language use. The Foreign Language Educator in Society:
Toward A Critical Pedagogy: *emphasizes what teachers and future
teachers of foreign languages in this country ought to know and
understand about language-- language attitudes, practices, rights, and
policy-- and related issues; *focuses on helping students to move
beyond pragmatic pedagogical concerns to the social and political
concerns relevant to their teaching; and *provides students with the
opportunity to develop critical perspectives on the central facets of
the language education process. Intended for foreign language
education programs at both basic and advanced levels, as well as
courses in critical pedagogy, critical language awareness,
sociolinguistics, and social and cultural foundations of education,
the text provides helpful pedagogical features to direct the reader in
applying the content of each chapter to his or her own context.
