Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

professionalism and the rise of "multiple literacies"; empirical research;
longitudinal studies; case studies; ethnography; teacher research; teacher
inquiry into literacy, social justice, and power; synthesis research;
fictive representation; and contemporary methodological issues and future
direction in research on the teaching of English. "Methods of Research on
Teaching the English Language Arts" is well-suited for use in upper-level
undergraduate and graduate-level literacy research methods courses.
