Language in Education: A Source Book.
Cashdan, A., Ed.; Grugeon, Elizabeth, Ed.
This collection of essays is concerned with the relationships between language and education. It is intended to be used in an undergraduate course but may also be used by many others interested in language in an educational context. A variety of approaches to the subject are considered, including the philosophical, psychological, sociological, linguistic, and literary. The readings have been selected on the basis of their representativeness and accessibility in terms of the main disciplines involved, their relevance to education in general and their relevance to the students enrolled in this course. The book begins with two essays by philosophers on the topics of language and society and the problems of language usage. Subsequent parts of the book consider (1) language as system and as behavior; (2) language and social reality; (3) social relationships and language codes; (4) language in the classroom; (5) language acquisition; (6) language deprivation and its educational implications; (7) language and values; and (8) language and literature.
