Language Values and Identities: Code Switching in Secondary Classrooms in Malta.
Camilleri, Antoinette
Linguistics and Education, v8 n1 p85-103 1996
Examines language practices in secondary classrooms in Malta, showing how teachers and students switch between Maltese and English to construct knowledge, interact with monolingual English texts, and interrelate. The article places these practices against the island's historical and social background to reveal that teachers use English to appear "educated," while espousing a Maltese identity.
