  • Precision: Toward a meaning-centered view of language use with English
           learners in the content areas
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: Linguistics and Education, Volume 50Author(s): Scott E. Grapin, Lorena Llosa, Alison Haas, Marcelle Goggins, Okhee Lee To support English learners (ELs) in attaining rigorous content standards, U.S. federal legislation requires that English language proficiency (ELP) standards align with content standards. Whereas language use in content learning has traditionally been defined in terms of structure, content and language educators have devoted increased attention to precision. Precision goes beyond the structural elements of language to the disciplinary meaning that those elements communicate. In this article, we define precision and distinguish it from vocabulary, accuracy, and complexity. Then, we highlight divergent conceptions of precision in content standards and ELP standards. In light of these divergent conceptions, we present work samples from an elementary science classroom to illustrate how precision of disciplinary meaning is essential to engaging in disciplinary practices of content standards. We close by proposing the need for a more meaning-centered view of language use with ELs in the content areas.

  • Signaling a language of possibility space: Management of a dialogic
           discourse modality through speculation and reasoning word usage
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: Linguistics and Education, Volume 50Author(s): Maureen P. Boyd, Ming Ming Chiu, Yiren Kong When members of a classroom community routinely listen to one another and build on one another's ideas, not only do students learn and improve their cognitive and communication skills, but teacher and students develop a disposition to listen, think and talk together. However, such dialogic, classroom talk is rare. In this study we show how a teacher's epistemological commitment (that student ideas matter) combined with oracy practices (safe space for student talk; student ideas drive classroom talk; support multiple perspectives) realized through speculation and reasoning (S&R) words foster dialogic talk. We examined S&R words (think, would, might/maybe, if, so, but, how, why) in 1299 turns of talk in two lessons in one classroom of six 4–5th grade English Language Learners. Statistical discourse analysis showed that S&R words occurred more often during what we refer to as connect episodes (students made personal connections to the content), not after particular types of turns. Close discourse analysis showed how S&R word use cultivated a language of possibility and how management of classroom discourse modality promoted dialogic talk.
       
  • Evaluative conduct in teacher–student supervision: When students
           assess their own performance
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: Linguistics and Education, Volume 50Author(s): Karianne Skovholt, Elin Nordenström, Elizabeth Stokoe The practice of evaluating one's own performance or that of another is ubiquitous across workplace and institutional settings and is foundational to the educational endeavour. In contrast to the traditional dynamic of teachers assessing students’ performance, however, this paper focuses on how students evaluate their own performance in feedback meetings. Using conversation analysis, we investigate two Scandinavian educational settings in which students evaluate, reflect on and assess their own work. Analysis focuses on how evaluative practices are initiated and/or elicited by teachers, and how they align with or disrupt conversation analytic norms around self-assessment. We found that doing evaluation presents interactional challenges for those eliciting, doing and responding to it, despite the core nature of assessment in educational settings. We discuss the implications for preference organisation in specialised institutional settings and seek to understand what counts as assessment and evaluation in real pedagogic events.
       
  • ‘You can…’: An examination of language-minoritized learners’
           development of metalanguage and agency as users of academic language
           within a multivocal instructional approach
    • Abstract: Publication date: April 2019Source: Linguistics and Education, Volume 50Author(s): Emily Phillips Galloway, Christina Dobbs, Marisa Olivo, Chloe Madigan In this study, we examine the possibility of using student-generated metalanguage as a primary instructional resource for building knowledge of academic language (AL) and for fostering students’ agency as AL users. We conducted this study over three academic years in a linguistically diverse 11th-grade English classroom in a high school in the Northeastern United States. Three cohorts of students were participants in a newly-designed instructional unit focused on supporting AL learning as a core component of fostering access to school literacy practices. In our analysis of classroom talk and focus group interviews, we examine the language students employed to discuss academic registers across the unit. Specifically, we investigate how they extend and expand their academic metalanguage resources and sense of agency as academic language users over the course of this short curricular unit. Results suggest the promise of using approaches that view student metalanguage as an instructional resource, and, in so doing, honor the lived experiences of students as language users.

  • Learning language and mathematics: A perspective from Linguistics and
           Education
    • Abstract: Publication date: February 2019Source: Linguistics and Education, Volume 49Author(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.
       
  • Preference organization in English as a Medium of Instruction classrooms
           in a Turkish higher education setting
    • Abstract: Publication date: February 2019Source: Linguistics and Education, Volume 49Author(s): Derya Duran, Olcay Sert Previous conversation analytic research has documented various aspects of preference organization and the ways dispreference is displayed in relation to pedagogical focus in L2 and CLIL classrooms (Seedhouse, 1997, Hellermann, 2009, Kääntä, 2010). This study explores preference organization in an under-researched context, an English as a Medium of Instruction (EMI) setting, and it specifically focuses on how a teacher displays dispreference for preceding learner turns. The data consist of 30 h of video recordings from two EMI classes, which were recorded for an academic term at a university in Turkey. Using Conversation Analysis, we demonstrate that the teacher employs a variety of interactional resources such as changing body position, gaze movements, hedging, and delaying devices to show dispreference for preceding student answers. Based on our empirical analysis, the ways the teacher prioritizes content and task over form/language are illustrated. The analyses also reveal that negotiation of meaning at content level and production of complex L2 structures can simultaneously be enabled through teachers’ specific turn designs in EMI classroom interaction. This demonstrates that preference organization, particularly in a teacher's responsive turns, can act as a catalyst for complex L2 production and enhance student participation. This study has implications for conversation analytic research on instructed learning settings, and in particular on teachers’ turn design in classroom interaction.

  • Are females and males equitably represented' A study of early readers
    • Abstract: Publication date: February 2019Source: Linguistics and Education, Volume 49Author(s): Jackie F.K. Lee, Andy C.O. Chin Early readers can play a significant role in the intergenerational transmission of gender roles. The present study examines how females and males are represented in selected early readers recommended by the Education Bureau of Hong Kong for the promotion of ‘Reading to Learn’ and ‘Reading across the Curriculum’. The study used both manual and computational methods to examine how experiential and relational values are expressed through variables such as the ratio of female-to-male character types, the roles and activities depicted, character identification and the order of mention of males and females. The findings show that although the number of female human character types was similar to that of their male counterparts, there were substantially more male than female animal character types. The study also reveals gender stereotypes including confining females to a limited range of traditional roles and activities, addressing females more informally than males, and a stronger tendency to identify females by their relationships with others. The paper ends with some recommendations for education authorities, teachers and parents on how to help children interpret gender and redress unfair practices.
       
  • “I still think there's a need for proper, academic, Standard English”:
           Examining a teacher's negotiation of multiple language ideologies
    • Abstract: Publication date: February 2019Source: Linguistics and Education, Volume 49Author(s): Megan M. Weaver To better understand writing teachers’ language ideologies and how they might challenge or support the implementation of Student's Right to Their Own Language (SRTOL) tenets in the classroom, this study examined the articulated language ideologies of a college writing instructor. In particular, I investigated how the instructor negotiates multiple language ideologies, including standard language ideology as well as more critical beliefs regarding language, to voice an appropriateness-based stance toward language variation. Such a stance views linguistic codes as appropriate in certain contexts and inappropriate, or unsuitable, in others. By voicing an appropriateness-based stance before and after her participation in professional development workshops designed to further develop instructors’ critical language awareness, the instructor illustrates the complexity of enacting the tenets of SRTOL, even after engaging in reflexive analysis of her own language beliefs. To conclude, I suggest that the development of critical language awareness necessitates continual challenge and support if SRTOL is to move from theory to praxis in education.
       
  • Navigating morality in neoliberal spaces of English language education
    • Abstract: Publication date: February 2019Source: Linguistics and Education, Volume 49Author(s): Gordon Blaine West Neoliberal policies in education have created a focus on profits and competition, systemically casualized teachers as workers, and commodified language and race in ways that impact teachers and how they navigate the morality of their work under these conditions. This article investigates teachers as they construct moral selves in the neoliberal context of private English language institutes in South Korea. Drawing on data from a two-year longitudinal study, it offers new insights on teacher morality construction using positioning analysis of narratives. Narrative analysis allows for situated, interactive, layered examinations of how teachers create moral selves. In their stories, explanations, justifications, and other linguistic devices mark positions in which teachers disagree with, yet align to neoliberal policies. These tensions illustrate how neoliberalism comes to be viewed as immutable, and how teachers adopt an individualized sense of justice in response, while also facing pressure to maintain privileges they gain through the system.
       
  • Negotiating the terms of engagement: Humor as a resource for managing
           interactional trouble in after-school tutoring encounters
    • Abstract: Publication date: February 2019Source: Linguistics and Education, Volume 49Author(s): Anne Pomerantz This paper examines how tutors and tutees negotiate the terms of their engagement within the context of an after-school program in the United States of America that pairs university students with immigrant children from Bangladesh for the purpose of working through the children's homework assignments. Drawing on insights and approaches from linguistic ethnography, it argues that humor plays a meaningful yet overlooked role both in managing the transactional and interpersonal dimensions of homework help sessions and in illuminating the ongoing tensions and uncertainties at various levels of social organization that tutors and tutees encounter as they engage with one another. Likewise, it shows how a focus on humorous talk can illuminate aspects of tutees’ communicative repertoires as emergent bilinguals that may go unnoticed when only serious talk is considered. The paper ends with a discussion of the implications of this study's findings for the preparation of tutors working in bi/multilingual settings.
       
  • Lexical characteristics of written language input across primary grades:
           An analysis of a Dutch corpus based lexicon
    • Abstract: Publication date: February 2019Source: Linguistics and Education, Volume 49Author(s): Marlies de Zeeuw, Franc Grootjen, Gerrit Jan Kootstra, Agnes Tellings The lexical written language input aimed at beginning readers may influence reading success. We analyzed a lexicon based on a corpus of Dutch reading materials for primary school children to gain insight into the frequency distribution of different word types, i.e. words with similar word characteristics, both per grade and across grades. The frequencies of monomorphemic, concrete words and of polysemous words remained relatively stable, whereas that of multimorphemic and monomorphemic abstract words increased across grades. Within each grade, multimorphemic and monomorphemic, abstract words had lower frequencies than monomorphemic, concrete words. Difficult polysemous words were less frequent than easy polysemous words in all grades. Some additional explorations on a larger word set corroborated our findings. Our findings suggest that authors of child reading materials adapt their choice of words to the intended vocabulary knowledge level, consistent with vocabulary knowledge development theories. We discuss theoretical and educational implications of our findings.
       
  • ‘We throw away our books’: Students’ reading practices
           and identities
    • Abstract: Publication date: February 2019Source: Linguistics and Education, Volume 49Author(s): Cathy O'Shea, Sioux McKenna, Carol Thomson The aim of this research was to understand university students’ self-reported reading practices. The students attended the University of Fort Hare in South Africa, a historically black institution in a rural and under-resourced setting. A framework of New Literacy Studies (NLS) was used to understand students’ self-reported reading practices and the links between these and their identities. Tools provided by Gee, 2005, Gee, 2011 were applied to conduct a CDA of focus group discussions. In the ‘We Blacks’ Discourse, interviewees ‘othered’ the idea of reading as not being culturally valued. It was closely allied to the ‘Resistance to Reading’ Discourse, as participants explained that they tended to disregard books and did not enjoy leisure reading. The ‘Better Than Us’ discourse was drawn upon to suggest that reading was associated with attitudes of superiority. These discourses tended to homogenise class and other differences between black students and indicated the ways in which their experiences made adopting academic identities difficult. The analysis suggests that the racism of the past continues to impact students’ reading identities. The article concludes that the effects of these and related discourses require a response across the education sector, and transformative pedagogies might be needed in higher education.
