Creating Inclusive Learning Communities through English Language Arts: From "Chanclas" to "Canicas."
Franquiz, Maria E.; Reyes, Maria de la Luz
Language Arts, v75 n3 p211-20 Mar 1998
Offers examples of exemplary classroom practice to address the issue of whether English language arts teachers can teach effectively if they are not fluent in the languages students speak. Discusses acts of inclusion (such as raising language status, and having flexible language boundaries), codeswitching as a resource, language choice and metalinguistic awareness, and learning in the "transformational space."
