Teaching English as a Second Language in Science Classes: Incommensurate Epistemologies?
Arkoudis, Sophie
Language and Education, v17 n3 p161-73 2003
Discusses the state of Victoria's (Australia) policy of mainstreaming English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL). Argues that the notion of mainstreaming has not been adequately addressed by research in this area. Explores the epistemological authority of an ESL teacher when planning curricula with a science teacher. Examines the importance of understanding the distinct discourse communities to which ESL and science teachers belong. (Author/VWL)
