Abstract:

This volume looks at the interactions of collaborating teachers in multilingual
classrooms and how these impact on what counts as knowledge in the secondary
school classroom. It also looks at how policy statements and ideologies around
multilingualism position teachers and learners in particular ways. A linguistic
ethnographic approach is taken in the study, which considers the discourses of
whole class and small group teaching and learning. Chapters consider the
relation between different languages, different pedagogues and different teacher
identities in the secondary school classroom. The book documents how a policy of
inclusion is played out in practice.


Review:
"This highly topical book offers a critical analysis of collaboration between
English as an additional language (EAL) teachers and subject teachers in
schools. Angela Creese raises important questions about how issues of power and
positioning affect the implementation of educational policy for bilingual
children, and about how diversity is viewed in English schools. This excellent
book will be of immense value to teachers, researchers and policy-makers." Dr
Adrian Blackledge, Senior Lecturer, School of Education, University of Birmingham.
