Language Policy in Schools by David Corson

Book Description

Language Policy in Schools provides school administrators and teachers a practical approach for designing a language policy for their school and for dealing with the language issues that confront schools, particularly those operating in settings of linguistic and cultural diversity. It can be used as a text in teacher and administrator preparation programs, graduate programs, and in-service and professional development programs. Special features include: * a clear, jargon-free writing style that invites careful reading; * abundant examples that students of education everywhere can learn from--including samples of school language policies developed for real schools by real teacher-researchers; * questions at the end of each chapter to highlight key points and stimulate informed discussion among pre-service and experienced teachers and administrators; and * an up-to-date international and cross-cultural biography.
