Description: The Misteaching of Academic Discourse is the story of one woman's attempt to teach working-class minority students the mainstream academic ways of speaking necessary for success in school. Lilia Bartolome captures the ideological battle of wills that results in her classroom as she unmasks the veiled antagonistic relationship between herself, a white teacher, and her Mexican-American students.

Unlike more conventional literature on language learning in which the political dimensions of language learning are seldom acknowledged or addressed, Bartolome candidly discusses the dominant deficit ideology that underlies the cultural difference explanations of linguistic minority students' academic underachievement. She also tackles the romantization ideology that implicitly presents dominant culture ways of speaking as more advanced and desirable.

The Misteaching of Academic Discourse is not only timely, given our present national obsession with Ebonics; it is a must-read for those educators who are faced with issues of language, race, and class.
