Language Use in the Two Way Classroom

Language Use in the Two Way Classroom
Author: Renée DePalma
Pages: 224
ISBN: 1847694837
Available:
Release: 2010-08-05
Editor: Multilingual Matters
Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Based on an extended ethnographic study of a dual language (Spanish-English) Kindergarten, this book takes a critical look at children's linguistic (and non-linguistic) interactions and the ways that teaching design can help or hinder language development. With a focus on official “Spanish time”, it explores the particular challenges of supporting the minority language use as well as the teacher's strategies for doing so. In bilingual classrooms, teachers' goals include bilingualism as well as academic achievement for all. The children may share these interests, but have their own agendas as well. This book explores the linguistic and social interactions that may help, or hinder, these multiple and sometimes conflicting agendas. How can teachers design educational practice that takes into consideration broader forces of language hegemony as well as children's immediate interests?

Language: en

Explanation of the Book:

Discipline is a topical issue. It safeguards our rights as individuals and, without appearing to, impacts all our relationships. In this ground-breaking book, bestselling author and psychologist Dr Tony Humphreys addresses the many issues surrounding discipline in both the broad and immediate sense. With his usual clarity he helps define areas that have become confused in our rapidly changing and expanding society. A common misconception is that discipline applies only to children, but it is as much an issue for adults as it is for young people. It is not about controlling others, Dr Humphreys points out, instead it is about helping others to learn to control themselves. Discipline demands creativity, commitment and time. It is about parents, teachers, carers and communities working as partners. True discipline is not abusive, aggressive, cynical or manipulative. It is about clear communication, consistent application, adaptability, support and co-operation. Most of all it is about respect, acceptance and love. In A Different Kind of Discipline, Dr Humphreys guides us through steps to create a positive environment in homes, schools and communities where mutual respect and thus discipline all have their place.
