Chapter
There has been a shift in receiving countries and their education programs for adult immigrants around the world. A complete focus on immigrants' cultural integration and learning of the language of the country has shifted to an understanding that supporting heritage language maintenance benefits adults with little or no formal schooling in that la...

Full-text available
Recent legislation and education standards focus on the importance of developing students' academic and professional writing skills. Research on the teaching of writing has articulated the types of texts and features of writing that students need to produce to succeed. At the same time, studies of writing in adult education have found that limited...
Article
Full-text available
Some adult migrants and refugees have no home language literacy, because they have attended little or no school in their home country. There are few studies of the literacy development of these adult learners and limited professional development for teachers who work with them. Recent research, and the formation of the LESLLA organization, are brin...
Article
Full-text available
As language practitioners shift away from the view that migrants must privilege the majority language over their home language(s) for purposes of integration into their new country, we join them and argue for including research on bilingualism / multilingualism in training and professional development for teachers of adult migrants with little or n...

The increasing number of students who enter U.S. schools from homes where languages other than English are spoken, and the recognition that proficiency in non-English languages is a valuable national resource, have generated interest in the field of heritage language instruction.

Article
Research in computer-supported writing has traditionally compared electronic communication with oral, face-to-face communication to identify the benefits and weaknesses of each, as if they entailed dichotomous choices. In this article, we challenge that view and argue instead that any form of communication and its educational usefulness is shaped b...
Article
Teachers implementing writing workshop with ESOL students often find that the realities of their teaching situation do not match their original vision of what writing workshop could or should be. Constraints of the school context and students' English language and literacy proficiency and cultural backgrounds present challenges that they need to ad...

This recreation is an essential element in the process of educational change. In this article we analyze the implementation of ENFI, an innovation that uses computers and local‐area networks in the teaching of wri...

Article
The use of dialogue journals as a means of communication between students and teachers originated as a teacher-developed classroom practice rather than a research idea or theory-derived technique. It began in 1964 when a California teacher, Leslee Reed, became fascinated with the comments about learning that she solicited from her students, and res...
Article
A study of the language used in the dialogue journals of beginning students of English as a second language (ESL) focused on the acquisition of English morphology. The study used two methodological approaches: a comparison of journal language with that used in speech and other written samples, and a longitudinal look at change patterns that also ex...
Article
Dialogue journals serve as conversations between teacher and student and provide a student-centered, communicative activity in which literacy skills can develop naturally. Students write as much as they choose about any topic, and the teacher responds as a co-participant in an ongoing, written conversation. The journals can be adapted to a variety...
Article
