This book has several fantastic essays on code switching, code meshing, power, and identity.It has helped me start to solidifying my thinking on teaching the intersection of language and identity to my high schoolers. I find strict code-switching somewhat problematic, both politically and practically. This has helped me to take the problems I saw and use them to begin to nuance my thinking.
As a (primarily) English teacher, "Code-Meshing and Creative Assignments: How students can stop worrying and learn to write like da bomb," by Theresa Malphrus Welford, particularly appealed to me.I hope to integrate several of her lessons, encourage genre- and code- mixing, into my classroom.
