4 Janson, Tore THE HISTORY OF LANGUAGES: AN INTRODUCTION
9780199604296 2011 0199604290 / 9780199604296 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. This is an introduction to the history of languages, from the distant past to a glimpse at what languages may be like in the distant future. It looks at how languages arise, change, and ultimately vanish, and what lies behind their different destinies. What happens to languages, he argues, has to do with what happens to the people who use them, and what happens to people, individually and collectively, is affected by the languages they speak. The book opens by examining what the languages are the hunter-gatherers mig ht have spoken and the changes to language that took place when agriculture made settled communities possible. It then looks at the effects of the inv ention of writing, the formation of empires, the spread of religions, and t he recent dominance of world powers, and shows how these relate to great ch anges in the use of languages. Tore Janson discusses the appearance of new languages, the reasons why some languages spread and others die, considers whether similar cyclical processes are found at different times and places, and examines the causes of internal changes in languages and dialects. The book ranges widely among the world's languages and mixes thematic chapters on general processes of change with accounts of specific languages, including Chinese, Arabic, Latin, Greek, and English.

LANGUAGE PROGRAM EVALUATION: THEORY AND PRACTICE (CAMBRIDGE APPLIED LINGUIS TICS), Lynch, Brian K.
6 Lynch, Brian K. LANGUAGE PROGRAM EVALUATION: THEORY AND PRACTICE (CAMBRIDGE APPLIED LINGUIS TICS)
Cambridge University Press 1995 0521484383 / 9780521484381 Paperback Very Good 
Although much has been written about the testing and evaluation of language students, few books have dealt with the much broader issue of measuring th e success of language programs. Filling a critical gap in the literature of applied linguistics, Language Program Evaluation provides teachers, resear chers, and administrators with a complete introduction to both qualitative and quantitative approaches to evaluating the effectiveness of their progra ms. Through a careful blend of theory, research, and practice, the author p resents a testing model that is specifically tailored to the concerns of la nguage education programs and which can be adapted to different contexts an d updated as teaching and learning situations evolve. He proposes a shift f rom purely quantitative studies which consider only end-of-program achievem ent gains to ones that include an investigation of program process using qu alitative, naturalistic methods.

10 Staton, Jana DIALOGUE JOURNAL COMMUNICATION: CLASSROOM, LINGUISTIC, SOCIAL, AND COGNITIV E VIEWS
Ablex Publishing 1988 0893914312 / 9780893914318 Paperback Very Good 
A bright clean softcover small crease to frontcover, no markings throughout : The thesis of this volume is that writing done by students who control their own topics, who have genuine purposes for writing, and have a real, known audience, is quite different and valuable in its own right. It forms a rich source of information about how young students think, manage their social interactions, and use language with competence to get things done. By selecting dialogue journal writing as a corpus for analysis, it is possible to observe children's communicative competence in using written language purposefully, apart from their ability to master a particular form of writing. The central argument is that dialogue journal communication represents a kind of personal literacy, prior to and more comprehensive than the particular literacies emphasized and assessed in schools. The contents include a practitioner's view of the practice itself and a summary of the research study methods developed to analyze interactive written conversations.
