Research in Bilingual Education

The central question in this series is how to train teachers of an increasingly multilingual and multicultural American school population. Teacher Training and Effective Pedagogy in the Context of Student Diversity offers (1) a research-based dialogue from a variety of perspectives about teacher training and teaching in the context of student?s linguistic and cultural diversity, and (2) three major areas of professional development that have the potential to impact on teacher quality and on the educational services provided to English language learners at all levels of instruction.

Call for Manuscripts

A Handbook to Implement Educational Programs, Practices, and Policies for English Language Learners

IAP is looking for manuscripts that take as their topic the full range of bilingual-bicultural education issues in PreK-16 education. Contributions need to examine the most informed and effective instructional programs, practices and policies for English Language Learners (ELLs) in this era of Common Core Standards. The content of each manuscript should focus on the state of the art and research on successful programs and practices for instructing ELLs with new evidence-based developments in the field. Because policy decisions influence practice, we are very interested in the implications and implementation of policies to encourage conversations that inspire changes in practice that lead to improved learning in classrooms with ELLs.
