Research methods in language and education

Nancy H. Hornberger, David Corson

Springer, 1997 - 378 pages.

The present volume seeks to enable language and education
practitioners, researchers, and interested lay readers alike to get a
sense of the range of issues being pursued in language and education
research and the array of methods employed to do so. A major
assumption of the volume is that both micro and macro perspectives and
both social and linguistic levels of analysis are critical for an
understanding of the interaction between language and education. It is
organized in four parts, focusing in turn on language and education in
relation to society, variation, culture, and interaction. The
contributing scholars hail from five continents and nine countries;
they represent a great diversity of linguistic, cultural, and
disciplinary traditions. For all that, what is most impressive about
this volume is the unity of purpose and outlook with regard to the
central role of language as both vehicle and mediator of educational
processes and to the need for continued and deepening research into
the limits and possibilities that implies.
