Conglomeration or Chameleon? Teachers' Representations of Language in the Assessment of Learners with English as an Additional Language.
Gardner, Sheena; Rea-Dickins, Pauline
Language Awareness, v10 n2-3 p161-77 2001
Investigates teacher representations of language in relation to assessment contexts. Analyzes not only what is represented in teachers' use of metalanguage, but also how it is presented--in terms of expression, voice, and source. The analysis is based on interviews with teachers, transcripts of lessons, and classroom-based assessments, formal written profiles of children's language development and achievement, and relevant curriculum and policy documents.
