      Abstract:

      This ethnography of language and education considers the ethics of
      pedagogy for linguistically and culturally diverse students. It does
      so by drawing on the existentialist ethics of the philosopher
      Emmanuel Levinas. Following the Levinasian connection between ethics
      and language, the study explores the ethical challenges and
      possibilities confronting teachers of junior school students (ages 6-
      10) who speak languages in addition to or other than the dominant
      language which, in this study's Canadian context, is English.

      In particular, the study looks at images of self and other as they
      manifest themselves in pedagogical practices, and it elaborates
      relations of responsibility between teachers and students. The data
      include in-depth interviews with and extended observations of
      teachers in their publicly-funded, mainstream Anglophone school in
      Mississauga, Canada. The findings suggest that teachers with flexible
      linguistic identities are more amenable to pedagogical practices
      supportive of linguistic diversity during the regular school day
      while teachers with less equivocal linguistic identities are more
      sympathetic to a monolingual mandate.
