McKinney, Carolyn; Tyler, Robyn – Language and Education, 2019
Language ideologies profoundly shape and constrain the use of language as a resource for learning in 'multilingual' or linguistically diverse classrooms. In this paper, we draw attention in particular to the ideology of languages as stable, boundaried objects and to the colonial invention of African languages. Against this backdrop, we analyse an…

Prinsloo, Mastin; Krause, Lara-Stephanie – Language and Education, 2019
Prevalent approaches to classroom languaging and bilingual education interpret the practices of multilingual groups of people through a monolingual lens that obscures the fluid languaging and semiotic practices of contemporary communities who engage in dynamic semiotic and linguistic practices, rather than 'add' one language to another in the form…

Odugu, Desmond I.; Lemieux, Camille N. – Language and Education, 2019
Despite advances in multilingual education (MLE) scholarship, education in most African societies remain characteristically congruent with colonial normative monolingual and transitional multilingual policies, which limit the use of native language(s) as media of instruction to early primary schooling. This contributes to poor educational and…

Evans, Michael; Fisher, Linda; Forbes, Karen; Liu, Yongcan – Language and Education, 2019

This paper reports on data gathered from a longitudinal study of newly arrived students with English as an additional…

There can be significant diversity in the language experience of minority language children, and in the levels of proficiency reached.

Cunningham, Clare – Language and Education, 2019

Delahunty, Janine; O'Shea, Sarah – Language and Education, 2019
'Student success' is a key driver in higher education policy and funding.
