The Role of Inuit Languages in Nunavut Schooling: Nunavut Teachers Talk about Bilingual Education
Aylward, M. Lynn
Canadian Journal of Education, v33 n2 p295-328 2010
This article provides a discourse analysis of interview transcripts generated from 10 experienced Nunavut teachers (five Inuit and five non-Inuit) regarding the role of Inuit languages in Nunavut schooling. Discussion and analysis focus on the motif of bilingual education. Teachers' talk identified discourse models of "academic truths" and "revitalization," demonstrating how Nunavut teachers are making efforts to engage with community to effect lasting educational change. (Contains 1 table and 6 footnotes.)
