Educational Linguistics in Practice: Applying the Local Globally and the Global Locally
King, Kendall A.; Hult, Francis M.
This volume provides a state-of-the-art snapshot of language and education research and demonstrates ways in which local and global processes are intertwined with language learning, use, and policies. Reflecting but also expanding on Nancy Hornberger's ground-breaking contributions to educational linguistics, this book brings together leading international scholars. Chapters present new research and cutting-edge syntheses addressing current theoretical and methodological issues in researching equity, access, and multilingual education. Organized around three central themes--bilingual education and bilingualism, the continua of biliteracy, and policy and planning for linguistic diversity in education--the volume reflects the holistic and dynamic perspective on language (in) education that is the hallmark of educational linguistics as a field.
