Encyclopedia of Language and Education
Call Number:Cubb Ref. P40.8 .E53 2008
"In the selection of topics and contributors, the Encyclopedia seeks to
reflect the depth of disciplinary knowledge, breadth of interdisciplinary
perspective, and diversity of sociogeographic experience in our field.
Language socialization and language ecology have been added to the
original eight volume topics, reflecting these growing emphases in language
education theory, research, and practice, alongside the enduring
emphases on language policy, literacies, discourse, language acquisition,
bilingual education, knowledge about language, language testing, and
research methods. Throughout all the volumes, there is greater inclusion
of scholarly contributions from non-English speaking and non-Western
parts of the world, providing truly global coverage of the issues in the
field. Furthermore, we have sought to integrate these voices more fully
into the whole, rather than as special cases or international perspectives
in separate sections."
