Students Speak Out: A Not So Comprehensive Look at What's Really Going On. Language in the Classroom: A Series. 5.
This pamphlet is the fifth in a series of ten stemming from the view that language is central to learning, that teachers can gain insights into their work and into learning by examining the language of the classroom, and that current language theory can be the means to such insights. The pamphlet reports on a case study involving a twelfth grade student, undertaken to discover the language experiences of the secondary school student and the role that differing language forms play in the educational success and satisfaction of students at this level. It contains the following: brief statements of theory and opinion relating to language teaching and usage, excerpts from the subject's class notes, excerpts from two lessons, and excerpts from transcripts made of the subject's comments about a paper she had written and about the special languages used in different courses.
