About this product
- SynopsisThis book examines how Russian-speaking adoptees in three US families actively shape opportunities for language learning and identity construction in everyday interactions. By focusing on a different practice in each family (i.e. narrative talk about the day, metalinguistic discourse or languaging, and code-switching), the analyses uncover different types of learner agency and show how language socialization is collaborative and co-constructed. The learners in this study achieve agency through resistance, participation, and negotiation, and the findings demonstrate the complex ways in which novices transform communities in transnational contexts. The perspectives inform the fields of second language acquisition and language maintenance and shift. The book further provides a rare glimpse of the quotidian negotiations of adoptive family life and suggestions for supporting adoptees as young bilinguals.

- Reviews"Second Language Socialization and Learner Agency: Adoptive Family Talk" makes important contributions to the field of bilingual education and bilingualism. Furthermore, it engages with, clarifies, and argues for the construct of agency in language learning research. In so doing, Fogle generates truly poignant accounts that reflect the challenges of crossing linguistic, cultural, and national boundaries as these adoptees and adoptive parents develop family identities through everyday talk. This lucid account of an ambitious investigation may also serve well to inform emerging researchers in PhD programs and more senior scholars who wish to engage in comparable projects.This volume would be a stimulating supplemental text in a graduate course on qualitative methods, bilingualism, discourse analysis, or language learner identity. This work will be most accessible to readers with a solid theoretical background in second language acquisition and particularly social and cultural approaches to SLA, but it also offers valuable insights and suggestions to parents, teachers, social workers, and other professionals who may encounter such families.,Fogle's fi ndings provide substantial insight for looking into the many factors that shape L2 socialization and for (re)considering the complex nature of socialization agency. Although the study focuses on transnational adoption, the analysis is also relevant for the study of other language socialization settings. For this reason, the book may be of interest for a broad audience in the field of SLA.,Fogle's groundbreaking work skillfully navigates unchartered waters in the field of applied linguistics. This close analysis of language use and language learning within transnational adoptive homes details the fascinating ways in which children and parents collaboratively make â and occasionally resist â family through language. Fogle's highly readable and engaging account highlights the active role children play in shaping their learning contexts and enriches our understanding of language learning processes.
