6 Rev ed
The sixth edition of Language and Learning continues to provide an accessible and comprehensive introduction to the nature and function of language and language learning and its implications for teaching. Written specifically for teacher-education students, it covers a range of language theories and uses relevant examples for applying them in the classroom. The book aims to support teachers in expanding their knowledge about language, in order to assist them to understand and implement curriculum guidelines, and to interpret current policies and future initiatives. Fully revised and updated, this edition builds on the sociocultural constructivist view of language and emphasises the changing nature of literacy, the breadth of multi literacies, and the importance of embracing new forms of language and literacy, such as the language of the internet, to enable students to participate effectively in society.
