Contributors Arnetha F. Ball, Victoria Cliett, Kim Brian Lovejoy, Rashidah Jaami Muhammad, Gail Y. Okawa, Dave Pruett, Geneva Smitherman, Elaine Richardson, Jan Swearingen, and Victor Villanueva address the issues inherent in linguistically diverse classrooms: language and racism, language and nationalism, and the challenges in teaching writing while respecting and celebrating students' own languages. Offering historical and pedagogical perspectives on language awareness and diversity, the essays reveal the nationalism implicit in the concept of "standard English, " advocate alternative training and teaching practices for instructors at all levels, and promote the respect and importance of diverse dialects, languages, and literatures.
