Micro Language Planning for Multilingual Education: Agency in Local Contexts
Liddicoat, Anthony J.; Taylor-Leech, Kerry
Current Issues in Language Planning, v15 n3 p237-244 2014
This paper overviews some of the domains of application of micro-level language planning approaches to foster multilingual education. It examines the language planning of local agents and the contexts in which their work contributes to multilingual education, either to expand or limit educational possibilities. It identifies four broad contexts of language planning activity in which local agents work: the local implementation of macro-level policy, contestation of macro-level policy, addressing local needs in the absence of macro-level policy and opening new possibilities for developing multilingualism. These contexts provide a way of framing the coSecond ntribution that micro language planning work and local agents can make to multilingual education.
