Julia Menard-Warwick: English Language Teachers on the Discursive Faultlines: Identities, Ideologies and Pedagogies

Multilingual Matters, 2013

This book by Professor Julia Menard-Warwick brings the voices of teachers into the fierce debates about language ideologies and cultural pedagogies in English language teaching. Through interviews and classroom observations in Chile and California, this study compares the controversies around English as a global language with the similar cultural tensions in programs for immigrants.

This study explores the development of teacher identity in these two very different contexts, and through the narratives of both experienced and novice teachers demonstrates how teacher identity affects the cultural pedagogies enacted in their classrooms.
