More than 50 years of scholarly attention to the intersection of language and education have resulted in a rich body of literature on the role of vernacular language varieties in the classroom. This field of work can be bewildering in its size and variety, drawing as it does on the diverse methods, theories, and research paradigms of fields such as sociolinguistics, applied linguistics, psychology, and education. Compiling most of the publications from the past half century that deal with this critical topic, this volume includes more than 1600 references (books, articles in journals or books, and web-accessible dissertations and other works) on education in relation to African American Vernacular English [AAVE], English-based pidgins and creoles, Latina/o English, Native American English, and other English vernaculars such as Appalachian English in the United States and Aboriginal English in Australia), with accompanying abstracts for approximately a third of them. This comprehensive bibliography provides a tool useful for those interested in the complex issue of how knowledge about language variation can be used to more effectively teach students who speak a nonstandard or stigmatized language variety.

"African American, Creole, And Other Vernacular Englishes In Education: A Bibliographic Resource is a must-read text for anyone teaching courses about language and education, or anyone doing research on the same topic. In the era of search engines, digital catalogues, and the Internet of all things, books still matter, especially those that help us make sense of a large body of literature." - Tony Mirabelli, Teachers College Record
"This volume is an invaluable resource for students, sociolinguists, applied linguists, educationists and anyone interested in unstandardised vernacular varieties of language, and the issues surrounding the education of their speakers. It also sets a new benchmark for the compilation and presentation of bibliographic resources." - Pidgins and Creoles in Education
