    • (2010), Elèves Nouvellement Arrivés en France. Réalités et perspectives en classe, préface de J-L. Chiss, Paris, Editions des Archives Contemporaines, 155p. Cet ouvrage prend appui sur une recherche menée depuis 2003 sur les élèves nouvellement arrivés en France. Le livre offre un éclairage historique et sociologique sur ce public avant d’effectuer une analyse sociolinguistique de la situation. Il ressort que les représentations et les pratiques de classe sont encore éloignées des recherches en sciences du langage. Des propositions didactiques sont alors formulées en faveur de la reconnaissance et du développement de compétences plurilingues chez l’élève.
