Sapién, Racquel-María; Hirata-Edds, Tracy – Language and Education, 2019
Although the ideal in work with endangered languages is to design collaborative projects that integrate documentation and support for revitalization from the outset, the reality is that many language workers must rely on existing products of documentation to create materials. Traditional documentation, including reference grammars, dictionaries,…

Jeung, Han Hee; Kellogg, David – Language and Education, 2019
The work of L.S. Vygotsky was popularised in the West between two great waves of educational thought: constructivism and cognitivism. Reception was therefore colored by three metaphors introduced by Jerome Bruner: 'construction', 'scaffolding' and 'narrative'. Narratives were to be characterized by features we call SELF: Subjects, Expectancy and…

Su, Wei – Language and Education, 2019
Previous studies comparing native English speaking (NES) and non-native English speaking teachers have stressed how each group can contribute their respective language advantages to language teaching and assessment. However, in an interpreting classroom where both groups know each other's native language, little is known about the different…

Pandya, Jessica Zacher; Mills, Kathy A. – Language and Education, 2019
While humour and laughter create conditions that are conducive for learning, different forms of children's humour have been given little attention in research on digital media, literacy learning, and multimodal design. Applying a Bakhtinian lens, we analyse carnivalesque videos created by elementary students as part of the formal curriculum. We…

Nic Fhlannchadha, Siobhán; Hickey, Tina M. – Language and Education, 2019
There can be significant diversity in the language experience of minority language children, and in the levels of proficiency reached.

Cunningham, Clare – Language and Education, 2019
Teachers' attitudes towards children's languages and culture have been shown to be instrumental in children's developing self-esteem and academic achievement.

Institutions often adopt a particular lens of success, emphasising 'retention and completion', 'high grades', 'employability after graduation' discourses, which place high value on human capital or fiscal outcomes. We explored how students themselves articulated notions of…
