Language, Power and Pedagogy

by Jim Cummins

As linguistic diversity increases in countries all around the world, policy-makers and educators are faced with complex and conflicting issues regarding appropriate ways of educating a multilingual school population. This volume reviews the research and theory relating to instruction and assessment of bilingual pupils, focusing not only on issues of language learning and teaching but also the ways in which power relations in the wider society affect patterns of teacher-pupil interaction in the classroom. Available to borrow at the Limes.
