A Multimodal Paradigm for TESL: Implications for the Classroom and Beyond.
Vavrus, Frances K.
IDEAL, v5 p75-100 1990
The issue of language variation is examined from three perspectives: the political view of nonnative varieties as examples of power; the anthropological view of language as an aspect of culture; and the pedagogical view of English as a static entity across cultures. Studies of teacher-training programs and teacher-trainee attitudes are included. (56 references) (Author/LB)
