Abstract:

"Beyond Grammar: Language, Power, and the Classroom" asks readers to think
about the power of words, the power of language attitudes, and the power of
language policies as they play out in communities, in educational
institutions, and in their own lives as individuals, teachers, and
participants in the larger community. Each chapter provides extended
discussion of a set of critical language issues that directly affect
students in classrooms: the political nature of language, the power of
words, hate language and bullying, gender and language, dialects, and
language policies. 
 
Written for pre-service and practicing teachers, this text addresses how
teachers can alert students to the realities of language and
power--removing language study from a "neutral" corner to situate it within
the context of political, social, and cultural issues. Developing a
critical pedagogy about language instruction can help educators understand
that classrooms can either maintain existing inequity or address and
diminish inequity through critical language study.
 
"Beyond Grammar: Language, Power, and the Classroom" is intended for
undergraduate and master's level courses that address literacy education,
linguistics, and issues of language and culture.
