Boyd, Maureen P.; Janicki-Gechoff, Emma – Language and Education, 2020
This paper defines the notion of "dialogic local space" and highlights its importance to teaching and learning. A dialogic local space values multiple local realities as it invites us to listen to, take up, and have confidence in our own local everyday and personal realities, and to listen to, consider, and respond to other local…

Lawrence, Whitney J.; Mathis, Janelle B. – Language and Education, 2020
Current literacy assessments are focused on a single mode of meaning-making (reading and writing, whether oral or written) and assume that literacy and language are 'fixed systems'-- comprised of discrete skills that can be taught and measured in isolation. This validation and privileging of a single mode of assessment are most culpable in…

While literacy research in the area of multimodality includes a range of communication modes, the combination of the visual and verbal modes is arguably the most common multimodal text form used in classroom contexts from posters, charts and information texts to picture books and graphic novels. Assessment of students' understanding of visual and…

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…

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…

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. Attitudes and the frequently attendant local policies about languages beyond English (LBE) in schools therefore need to be clear for children, as negative or contradictory discourses can…

Rydland, Veslem?y; Gr?ver, Vibeke – Language and Education, 2019
Although recent research has documented that classroom discussions may enhance students' reading comprehension, limited knowledge exists regarding the 'working ingredients' that extend students' comprehension of texts through peer discussion. This observational study examines the pre- and post-discussion comprehension of fifth graders,…

Prinsloo, Mastin; Krause, Lara-Stephanie – Language and Education, 2019
Prevalent approaches to classroom languaging and bilingual education interpret the practices of multilingual groups of people through a monolingual lens that obscures the fluid languaging and semiotic practices of contemporary communities who engage in dynamic semiotic and linguistic practices, rather than 'add' one language to another in the form…

Odugu, Desmond I.; Lemieux, Camille N. – Language and Education, 2019
Despite advances in multilingual education (MLE) scholarship, education in most African societies remain characteristically congruent with colonial normative monolingual and transitional multilingual policies, which limit the use of native language(s) as media of instruction to early primary schooling. This contributes to poor educational and…

Tadic, Nadja – Language and Education, 2019
Educators have long been advocating for the appropriation of students' interests into the classroom as a means of promoting participation and learning. However, little attention has been paid to the possible issues that interest-driven pedagogy might engender for both teachers and students through its blend of the personal and academic. This…

Edmonds-Wathen, Cris; Owens, Kay; Bino, Vagi – Language and Education, 2019
Teaching mathematics in children's first language has both cognitive benefits and assists with developing cultural and mathematical identity. In Papua New Guinea, many different Indigenous languages are used for instruction in elementary schools and teachers often need to identify or develop mathematics terminology themselves. Building on prior…
