Reclaiming Recess: Learning the Language of Persuasion
Gebhard, Meg; Harman, Ruth; Seger, Wendy
Language Arts, v84 n5 p419-430 May 2007
Using a case study approach, the authors describe how a teacher used the tools of systemic functional linguistics (SFL) to teach her fifth grade English Language Learners how to use academic language to challenge school policies regarding recess. In reflecting on these data, we discuss the potential of SFL to support teachers in responding to current school reforms. (Contains 7 figures and 1 note.)
