NALDIC Quarterly Volume 10 Number 1 (Online)
Edited by Angela Creese
The theme of this edition of NALDIC Quarterly is multilingual teaching and learning. The articles take the reader into multilingual classrooms in Birmingham, Copenhagen, Stockholm and Tilburg where they look at the multilingual practices and identities of young people and their teachers in a range of primary, secondary and complementary schools. This fascinating edition includes many examples of good practice but more importantly presents the complexities of everyday classroom life, of teacher identities with their own variegated histories, stories of successes and stories of struggles.
