Engaging Pre-Service Teachers in an Exploration of the Politics of Language

Engaging Pre-Service Teachers in an Exploration of the Politics of Language

Date: 2011
Creator: Lee, Cheu-jey George; Moss, Glenda & Coughlin, Elaine B.
Description: This article discusses engaging pre-service teachers in an exploration of the politics of language. Abstract: This study is concerned with an exploration of the politics of language with predominantly white pre-service teachers through a linguistic activity. It is a continuous, joint effort of three teacher educators working at two universities. Different pedagogical emphases and data collection methods are used at these two universities to investigate their impact on the pre-service teachers' awareness of the politics of language. It is shown that the pre-service teachers who are required to read critical literature and to reflect specifically on the linguistic activity through guiding questions become more aware of the political aspects of language than those who are not. Yet this critical awareness does not necessarily carry over into a change in their thinking about literacy education with language minority students. This study is hoped to serve as a prompt for more dialogue in this area.

Nurturing Life-Long Language Learners

Nurturing Life-Long Language Learners

Date: 2012
Creator: Rodriguez, Cynthia; Araujo, Juan; Narayan, Ratna; Shappeck, Marco & Moss, Glenda
Description: This article discusses nurturing life-long language learners. Abstract: English Language Learners of all ages and levels face a challenge when they encounter academically rich texts. To understand more about what literacy practices work with these students and to explore effective supports to inform the authors' preservice teachers, University of North Texas at Dallas faculty read and discussed 'Academic Language for English Language Learners and Struggling Readers' (Freeman & Freeman, 2009). Three themes emerged from the authors' reflexive discussions: Nurturing is developing readers and writers, nurturing is giving access to powerful language, and nurturing is preparing effective teachers for a labor intensive profession. As English language arts and content area teachers, it is crucial that we continue to work diligently toward identifying and implementing practices for English Language Learners that are challenging for this ever-growing population of students.
