Abstract:

"This book examines the complexities of the multiple discourses, texts and voices that are embedded in teaching and learning materials from different language contexts. Each chapter addresses important issues related to what constitutes "legitimate knowledge", the politics of learning materials, global cultural awareness, competing ideologies, and the development of multilingual literacies. The book is primarily addressed to those who teach and research in the areas of Foreign Language Education, TESOL, Applied Linguistics, Language Policy, Critical Pedagogy, and Textual Cultures. Although the book is focused on textbook and materials analysis, rather than evaluation, most chapters will discuss implications for curriculum design and materials development and therefore will be relevant to scholars working in those fields."--
