Resources

Below are some resources I have developed for my courses. Please feel free to use them with attribution.

Linguistic Landscape Activity

This activity is directly adapted from Bell, Allan. 2013. Guidebook to Sociolinguistics, Chapter 9. I implement it by reserving a classroom in the library, a more linguistically rich environment, and sending students out for half of our class period to document sources. I use Linoit, a free bulletin-boarding web app, to allow students to post photos from their smartphones which we can then project and discuss as a class.
