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…

Ollerhead, Sue – Language and Education, 2019
Despite the growing numbers of migrant students enrolling in Australian secondary schools, and an official acknowledgment of their complex support and learning needs, there has been little policy focus on the pedagogical changes that need to be made by teachers to accommodate these needs. There is also little understanding of the depth and…

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…

Tadic, Nadja – Language and Education, 2019
Educators have long been advocating for the appropriation of students' interests into the classroom as a means of promoting participation and learning.

Evans, Michael; Fisher, Linda; Forbes, Karen; Liu, Yongcan – Language and Education, 2019
Analysis of progression in spoken English by newcomer migrant-background learners has traditionally oscillated between formal assessment of oral proficiency and ethnographic description of naturally occurring peer discourse.

Cunningham, Clare – Language and Education, 2019
Teachers' attitudes towards children's languages and culture have been shown to be instrumental in children's developing self-esteem and academic achievement. Attitudes and the frequently attendant local policies about languages beyond English (LBE) in schools therefore need to be clear for children, as negative or contradictory discourses can…

Jiang, Anne Li; Zhang, Lawrence Jun – Language and Education, 2019
To promote English learning is an alleged benefit of implementing English-medium-instruction (EMI). However, English learning is supposed to occur incidentally in most EMI contexts. From the linguistic-ecological perspective, incidental language learning is premised on two conditions: linguistic inputs are perceived by learners as affordances,…

Tai, Kevin W. H.; Khabbazbashi, Nahal – Language and Education, 2019
There is limited research on second language (L2) vocabulary teaching and learning which provides fine-grained descriptions of how vocabulary explanations (VE) are interactionally managed in beginning-level L2 classrooms where learners have a limited L2 repertoire, and how the VEs could contribute to the learners' conceptual understanding of the…

Cahnmann-Taylor, Melisa; Hwang, Yohan – Language and Education, 2019
This paper examines the possibility of viewing TESOL teachers' identities through the metaphor of 'poet-teachers', viewing second language teachers as creative and collaborative meaning-makers.

Halbach, Ana; Candel Bormann, Daniel – Language and Education, 2019
Over the last decades, the term 'literacy' has extended far beyond its original reference to learning to read and write. However, few data are available about its actual application in schools across Europe. This article, which is part of a larger project, tries to identify the common trends and difficulties teachers face when dealing with…

Su, Wei – Language and Education, 2019
Previous studies comparing native English speaking (NES) and non-native English speaking teachers have stressed how each group can contribute their respective language advantages to language teaching and assessment. However, in an interpreting classroom where both groups know each other's native language, little is known about the different…

Pandya, Jessica Zacher; Mills, Kathy A. – Language and Education, 2019

Applying a Bakhtinian lens, we analyse carnivalesque videos created by elementary students as part of the formal curriculum. We…
