Summary
"English in Urban Classrooms is a ground-breaking text that spans a range of issues central to contemporary school English. It attends not only to the spoken and written language of classrooms, but also to other modes of representation and communication that are important in English teaching. This includes image, gesture, gaze, movement, and spatial organization."--BOOK JACKET
