A powerful and sophisticated reminder that words can indeed do as much damage as sticks and stones, "The Skin That We Speak" takes the discussion of language in the classroom beyond the highly charged war of idioms and presents today's teachers with a thoughtful exploration of the varieties of English they speak and the layers of politics, power, and identity those varieties carry.
