Accessible yet theoretically rich, this landmark text introduces key concepts and issues in critical discourse analysis and situates these within the field of educational research. Beyond providing a useful overview, it contextualizes CDA theories and methods in accounts of discourse in classroom and other settings, and identifies the ways in which these forms of language are connected to theories of learning. Detailed analytic procedures are included a " to demystify the process, to allow researchers to have a conversation about issues of trustworthiness of interpretations and their value to educational contexts, and to enable replication of studies.
