Changing Practices: Further Research, Equity Matters, and Other Lexical Bars
- 275 Downloads
In The Lexical Bar, I made few explicit recommendations about changing discursive practices in schools. There was a reason for this reticence. The results of the studies were so startling that it seemed wrong to argue from them for educational reforms, in case those reforms were seen as the motivation for the studies in the first place. Since the release of that book, the supporting evidence has grown, as set out especially in Chapters 2, 4, 7 and 8 of this book. Other researchers have also taken the ideas further. All this has helped clarify my thinking about what is ‘going on’ in the lexical bar, and what could be done to remove it.
