Special Edition
Identity and English Language Teaching
Edited by Kate Cadman & Kerry O'Regan

Released 2006

Learning a new language involves more than taking on a new vocabulary and new grammar. It involves experiences which challenge learners' identities and open up other possibilities. Much of the literature on this issue is by researchers, writing in the language of the academy. This book is by teachers, telling of their experiences for real classrooms, using the language of practising teachers. The writers come from all sectors, including primary, secondary and tertiary, and bring a range of perspectives on issues of language and identity that they face every day in their classrooms. This book is for their colleagues who may well see themselves in these stories as they are reassured, inspired and challenged by them.
