About Betsy Rymes

Betsy Rymes' research, theoretically and methodologically informed by linguistic anthropology, is centered in educational contexts and examines how languages, social interaction, and institutions influence an individual’s educational trajectory.
Her research on students and teaching in multiple contexts ranging from a Los Angeles alternative school, to rural elementary schools in Georgia, to bilingual teacher education, as well as her own experiences as a teacher all inform her new book, Classroom discourse analysis: A tool for critical reflection.
