  • Practices of self-selection in the graduate classroom: Extension,
           redirection, and disjunction
    • Abstract: Publication date: August 2018Source: Linguistics and Education, Volume 46Author(s): Junko Takahashi This study investigates the practices of student self-selection in the graduate-level American classroom. Self-selection is a crucial part of the learning process because it allows for the exchange of students’ and teachers’ views, analyses, and opinions, making these exchanges into a whole-classroom experience. Active students who make oral contributions in class are believed to learn more than those who do not (Weaver & Qi, 2005) and to enhance their critical thinking (Crone, 1997; Garside, 1996). In the graduate classroom, however, student self-selection may be challenging, as the material students tackle tends to be highly technical. Given the importance of student self-selection in this academically demanding context, more analytical attention must be devoted to uncovering the nature of participation. With 20 h of video data collected from graduate classes and analyzed through the lens of conversation analysis (CA), this study identifies three main practices employed by self-selecting speakers: extension by piling, contribution with hand-raising, and participation prefacing. Each occurs with different degrees of ‘fittedness’ to prior talk, in part evidenced in the different levels of mitigation use by the self-selectors. The findings of this study contribute to the small body of classroom discourse studies in the graduate classroom and provide a first step towards understanding how self-selections may be strategically managed or promoted.
       
  • Using student positioning to identify collaboration during pair work at
           the computer in mathematics
    • Abstract: Publication date: August 2018Source: Linguistics and Education, Volume 46Author(s): Anna F. DeJarnette When students share a computer in a mathematics class, the types of interactions that constitute collaboration can vary from more typical group work settings. The way that students position themselves towards one another through utterances and exchanges has implications for how students collaborate. In this paper I illustrate a method that uses techniques from Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL) to analyze how collaboration can be traced to strings of individual utterances and acts. Drawing on positioning theory and techniques from SFL, I pose the question, how can episodes of collaboration be operationalized through individual utterances and actions' These methods allow for comparison between different models of computer-based interaction and suggest how to foster collaboration in technology-rich settings. Additionally, this study suggests how a broad phenomenon such as collaboration could be described and measured by considering collaborative episodes on a small scale.
       
  • Constructed dialogue as a resource for promoting students’ socialization
           to written academic discourse in an EAP class
    • Abstract: Publication date: August 2018Source: Linguistics and Education, Volume 46Author(s): Marta Baffy This article examines how a professor in an advanced English for Academic Purposes (EAP) course promotes her students’ socialization to written academic discourse through what she says in class. Drawing on a corpus of teacher-student interactions in 12 class sessions, the paper focuses on the professor's use of “constructed dialogue” (Tannen, 1989), also referred to as direct reported speech or quotations, during her classroom talk. Close analyses of the professor's discourse reveal that she frequently constructs the speech of “writer” and “reader” of academic texts in order to subtly convey to students both the intellectual and social dimensions of the academic writing and reading process. The paper goes on to show that by fabricating and enacting the speech of writer and reader as engaged in this mutually dependent process, the professor both dramatizes and demonstrates the socio-cognitive nature of academic writing and reading, thereby supporting similar points she makes more directly in class.
       
  • Observing, resisting, and problem-posing language and power: Possibilities
           for small stories in inservice teacher education
    • Abstract: Publication date: August 2018Source: Linguistics and Education, Volume 46Author(s): Laura A. Taylor, Saba Khan Vlach, Melissa Mosley Wetzel Given the role of literacy education in (re)producing both oppressive and emancipatory language ideologies, teacher education must attend to teachers’ developing understandings of language and language learning. In this study, we examine one possible tool for building such understandings: through the telling of small stories. Focusing on small stories told during discussion of language variation within a graduate education course, we analyzed thirty such stories to identify how they were used to build identity positions and discourses of language. Three types of small stories were identified, each positioning the teller in distinct ways with regards to power and agency: as passive observer, as active resister, or as uncertain participant. These findings suggest affordances and constraints for using these types of narratives to examine and construct language ideologies within teacher education.
       
  • Connecting to learn, learning to connect: Thinking together in
           asynchronous forum discussion
    • Abstract: Publication date: August 2018Source: Linguistics and Education, Volume 46Author(s): Janine Delahunty This article combines a sociocultural model of classroom talk with a linguistically-oriented model (systemic functional linguistics) to explore what characterizes effective asynchronous online discussion in higher education (HE). While the benefits of discussion are commonly accepted in face-to-face learning, engaging students in effective asynchronous discussion can often be ‘hit or miss’, due in part to the shift to interacting asynchronously. This hybrid mode of spoken-like/written-like communication demands skills which are rarely made explicit, often with the assumption that students (and lecturers) are proficient. The combined framework presented here enabled macro- and micro-understandings of discussion forums through an array of resources in the SFL model and the talk type descriptors to map linguistic features of knowledge constructing talk in an Australian postgraduate HE context. The notion of ‘listening’ (or attending to others) is proposed as a crucial condition for whether discussion progresses beyond simply ‘posting’. Consequently, this article provides much needed insight into the murky space of asynchronous discussion forums.
       
  • Nature and function of proposals in collaborative writing of primary
           school students
    • Abstract: Publication date: August 2018Source: Linguistics and Education, Volume 46Author(s): Anke Herder, Jan Berenst, Kees de Glopper, Tom Koole The nature and function of proposals in collaborative writing of primary school students was studied from a sociocultural, interactional perspective, using data from 33 writing events in the context of inquiry learning. Five main targets of proposals were identified: content, procedure, translation, text structure and layout. We demonstrate how proposals are designed in different declarative and interrogative constructions. The objective of a proposal appears to be related to both the syntactical design, and the ways in which participants respond to proposals. Proposals for content and translation generate extensive discourse, in contrast to procedural proposals. Writing down the agreed words or sentences occurs in various sequential positions and consequently performs a different function in the joint construction of text. The results enhance our understanding of how primary school students collaboratively write texts.

  • Reframing recitation: The dialogic potential of students’ responses
           in IRE/F
    • Abstract: Publication date: June 2018Source: Linguistics and Education, Volume 45Author(s): Michael B. Sherry Education research has long documented a pattern called recitation, in which the teacher initiates a question, a student responds, and the teacher evaluates or follows up on that response (also known as IRE/F). Based on negative associations with student engagement and achievement, researchers have identified interventions in the IRE/F cycle intended to disrupt this routine and promote dialogic discourse, in which speakers build on what others have already said to refine their ideas. These interventions include changing the types of questions asked (the first turn) or the nature of the evaluative follow-ups (the third turn). However, research remains to be done on the dialogic potential of student responses (the second turn). In this article, I draw on concepts from Bakhtin's dialogism and Goffman's frame analysis to examine two excerpts from American secondary classrooms. In both, student resistance to recitation led to a reframing of the nature of the classroom activity, as speakers repurposed others’ strategies for simultaneously accomplishing both social and academic work.
       
  • The permanence of departure: Young Mexican immigrant students’
           discursive negotiations of imagined childhoods allá
    • Abstract: Publication date: June 2018Source: Linguistics and Education, Volume 45Author(s): Sarah Gallo, Meghan Dabkowski This article draws from a three-year ethnography with elementary school students from mixed-status Mexican immigrant families in Pennsylvania to explore the ways that they imagined potential childhoods and schooling in Mexico. Through attention to their stances and deictic choices during school-based talk, our findings reveal how going to Mexico was positioned as a permanent departure, and one that students often named as occurring soon, despite the fact that repatriation was extremely rare. We show how understanding children's discursive constructions of their imagined binational lives provides a mechanism for children to discursively try on and become familiar with an unfamiliar childhood, and thus, make such childhoods more inhabitable if they were to move to Mexico. We argue that understanding these processes is particularly important in increasingly anti-immigrant climates in which children from undocumented families may be facing possibilities of repatriation due to immigration policies.
       
  • National reproduction in national claims: A case study of discursive power
           in an adult English as a Second Language (ESL) classroom setting
    • Abstract: Publication date: June 2018Source: Linguistics and Education, Volume 45Author(s): Bryan Meadows While the language education scholarship has embraced transnational perspectives, classroom discourse at the practitioner level arguably remains locked within a national paradigm. This study serves to bridge this disconnect between academic and folk perspectives on nationalism by developing an empirical account of how adult participants in a single ESL (English as a Second Language) classroom determine the legitimacy of national claims during instructional talk. Grounded in theories of discursive nationalism, a coding analysis of primary (e.g., classroom discourse) and secondary (e.g., group discussions, interviews, observations, and member checks) data sets identifies the discursive components by which participants collectively (de)legitimize claims about nations. This systematic account can guide transformative discussions of how to reconfigure language classroom discourse according to a transnational framework that empowers learner cultural and linguistic practices.
       
  • Hunting the position: On the necessity of dissonance as attunement for
           dialogism in classroom discussion
    • Abstract: Publication date: June 2018Source: Linguistics and Education, Volume 45Author(s): Amy L. Boelé In exploring the relationship between talk, power, and the nature of knowledge in an elementary classroom, I examine how participants position themselves and others within the tensions and dilemmas of dialogic discourse. I argue that in order to understand the complex dilemmas of enacting dialogic discourse in classrooms, power structures must be foregrounded as important theoretical and analytical constructs. Various factors contribute to the positioning of ideas and participants, including teacher question types, the polarization of ideas, and deictic pronouns across multiple layers of activity. I trace a small group discussion of a debate about the moral versus legal ethics of hunting animals in order to make the central claim that dissonance is necessary to dialogism, but it must emerge out of relations of care and the continuous effort of attunement. Despite seemingly dialogic tasks and forms as well as a desire to create dialogic contexts on the part of the teacher, authoritative meanings can pervade the learning.
       
  • Capitalizing on linguistic variation in Greek Cypriot education
    • Abstract: Publication date: June 2018Source: Linguistics and Education, Volume 45Author(s): Stavroula Tsiplakou, Elena Ioannidou, Xenia Hadjioannou The Greek Cypriot speech community is diglossic; Cypriot Greek is the naturally acquired variety and Standard Greek is the superposed standard. This paper investigates the role of language variation in education policies and concomitant literacy practices in Cyprus. Past language policies dictated strict adherence to the language curricula of Greece, with minimal reference to linguistic variation for pedagogical purposes, the sole exception being the short-lived curriculum of 2010, which adopted a critical literacy approach and proposed capitalizing on variation as a tool for increasing students’ metalinguistic awareness. After describing the educational context in Cyprus in terms of language policy, the paper (a) investigates language variation in Greek Cypriot classrooms through ethnographic data; and (b) explores how nonstandard varieties can become a useful metalinguistic tool by presenting data from a pedagogical intervention.
       
  • Boundaries and hybrid blends: How one multilingual narrator displays
           symbolic competence in a college writing class
    • Abstract: Publication date: June 2018Source: Linguistics and Education, Volume 45Author(s): Josephine Meadows Kelso Literacy scholars and second language researchers have identified ELL writers' border crossing experiences as prime sites of critical literacy, observing multilingual speakers' increased ability to manipulate and inflect language with cross-cultural connotations, including metaphorical blending. Most second language researchers who look at ELL's metaphor production focus on language fluency, rather than symbolic competence. This case study compares one Vietnamese-American writer's unconscious application of conceptual metaphor with her consciously chosen metaphorical blend. This analysis finds that Violet displayed symbolic competence when unconsciously modifying source and target domains of conceptual metaphors as well as when consciously crafting her own metaphoric blend. The difference is that, despite Violet's symbolic competence, the conventional conceptual metaphors are more restrictive than her creative metaphoric blend. Violet's creative hybrid space allows her to imagine reconciliation and potential combinations of selected values rather than wholesale subscriptions to cultural norms.
       
  • Teachers’ open invitations in whole-class discussions
    • Abstract: Publication date: June 2018Source: Linguistics and Education, Volume 45Author(s): Annerose Willemsen, Myrte N. Gosen, Marije van Braak, Tom Koole, Kees de Glopper This article takes a conversation analytic approach to the often employed notions of ‘open-ended or authentic questions’ in classroom interaction. We analyzed the, as we called them, open invitations teachers utter after reading a piece of text during whole-class discussions in 4 Dutch upper primary school classes, of which 2 were followed for a longer period of time. Our data show that these invitations vary in openness. We found 4 different types: (1) invitations projecting (a series of) objectively true or false answers, (2) invitations projecting specific response types, (3) invitations that have a restricted referent but do not project specific response types, and (4) topic soliciting invitations giving room to various contributions. Virtually all invitations resulted in fitted responses. The subsequent interactions following the less open invitations typically resulted in series of parallel responses, whereas the more open invitations typically yielded discussions or the collaborative answering of clarification questions.
       
  • Korean–English bilingual sibling interactions and socialization
    • Abstract: Publication date: June 2018Source: Linguistics and Education, Volume 45Author(s): Hyonsuk Cho This paper examines how a pair of Korean–American siblings interact and socialize and how their interactions change over time as the younger sibling starts to go to an English-speaking preschool. A 7-year-old Korean–English bilingual girl and her 3-year-old sister were observed in their home over 23 visits within a year. Their discourse data, including 33 h of audio-recordings, were analyzed from the Language Socialization perspective. The older sibling's authority derived from the age-based Korean family hierarchy inevitably played a role in creating shared benefits in the bilingual sibling relationship. After the younger sibling began to speak English, there were noticeable changes in the power asymmetry and language parallelism—the younger sibling's repetition of older sibling's utterances. This study offers insight into the bidirectionality of sibling socialization processes of sibling interactions in relation to their bilingual and bicultural development.
       
  • Academic socialization as the production and negotiation of social space
    • Abstract: Publication date: June 2018Source: Linguistics and Education, Volume 45Author(s): Behnam Soltani This article introduces the concept of academic social space as a useful construct to understand and interpret the academic language socialization of individuals in English second language academic spaces. Academic social space builds on the concepts of community of practice (Lave & Wenger, 1991) and production of space (Lefebvre, 1991). The article then reports on a study that adopted the notion of academic social space to examine the language socialization of one international student in a tertiary institute in New Zealand. Data about this case from various sources including diaries, interviews, class observations, field notes, institutional documents, and video/audio recordings of classroom interactions are presented. The analysis of findings from this study showed the student displayed three differential participation patterns in the three social spaces in which he was engaged. He presented himself as an active participant in his English for Academic Purposes (EAP) course, a silent participant in the first mainstream social space, and a changing silent-active participant respectively in the classroom and online domains of his second mainstream social space. The findings also showed that the concept of academic social space enables thick description (Geertz, 1973) about the language socialization experiences of additional language learners in tertiary contexts. Understanding the various aspects of social space enables researchers, educators, policy makers, and teachers to revisit their notion of space by considering it as an active, dynamic, and organic participant in the learning process of second language learners.
       
  • Exploring the complexity of high school students’ beliefs about
           language variation
    • Abstract: Publication date: June 2018Source: Linguistics and Education, Volume 45Author(s): Mike Metz This study explores the knowledge and beliefs about language variation from high school students in the San Francisco Bay Area. Using quantitative analysis of a survey of language beliefs, combined with a thematic analysis of student interviews, the study explores the language ideologies demonstrated by students from a wide range of sociocultural backgrounds. Key findings include that neither race nor linguistic background predict whether students hold dominant language ideologies that frame Standardized English as the correct form of English, or critical language ideologies that uphold the value of all English varieties. The key characteristics that predict language ideology are parents’ language ideology and students’ awareness that they speak more than one variety of English. The findings support previous theorizing that suggests language ideologies shift with context and purpose. Students describe the racialized nature of language although there is great diversity of language ideology within racialized groups. As suggested by Kroskrity (2010) increased awareness of linguistic diversity and language ideologies is related to contestation of dominant language ideologies. Altogether the findings paint a picture of students with wide ranging knowledge and beliefs about language variation that will complicate teaching about language variation in school. Teachers will do well to assess what their students know and believe about language before teaching them. Researchers are encouraged to continue to explore student understandings of language variation as this area remains underdeveloped.
       
  • Creating translanguaging spaces in students’ academic writing
           practices
    • Abstract: Publication date: June 2018Source: Linguistics and Education, Volume 45Author(s): Kathrin Kaufhold Postgraduates increasingly write in multilingual contexts. Studies have focused on developing bilingual expertise or harnessing expressions of writer identity. Yet, the role of students’ linguistic ideologies and their writing experiences has so far not been problematised. Based on Busch's sociolinguistic model of linguistic repertoire (2012), this paper investigates how students develop their academic writing across language codes and registers in the multilingual contexts of a Swedish university. The qualitative, longitudinal study presents data from two students including interviews based on the students’ written text relating to their master's thesis. Findings show that students’ linguistic ideologies and their experiences can enable or restrict their capacity to draw on their varied repertoires. When enabled, students create translanguaging spaces for meaning making in collaboration with peers and institutional actors. I argue that the metaphor of translanguaging space can be fruitfully applied as a pedagogic tool.

  • Learning language and mathematics: A perspective from Linguistics and
           Education
    • Abstract: Publication date: Available online 30 March 2018Source: Linguistics and EducationAuthor(s): Louise C. Wilkinson The introductory article offers a framework for language education researchers and mathematics education researchers to share insights, questions, and understandings from their complementary perspectives on the relationship between language and mathematics. This Article Collection re-publishes seven, of the 18 articles that were authored by researchers from seven different countries; that addressed the topic and were published in Linguistics and Education since the journal's inception in 1988.The first part is organized into four sections, including: (1) The concepts of the academic language and the mathematics register; (2) the language and literacy challenges of teaching and learning mathematics; (3) specific issues for English learner students’ (EL students) mathematical learning and mastery of the mathematics register; and (4) implications for teaching mathematics to all students. A brief overview of the 18 published papers follows. A more detailed description of the seven Linguistics and Education articles provides a set of perspectives with corresponding analyses; that, taken together, constitute a context for an interdisciplinary sphere of developing research and theory regarding language, literacy and mathematics learning. Finally, the conclusion summarizes cross-cutting themes and suggestions for further study.
