Implementing Comprehensible Input In The World Language Classroom, 2019 The College at Brockport: State University of New York
Implementing Comprehensible Input In The World Language Classroom, Anna Disabatino
Education and Human Development Master's Theses
Using Comprehensible Input (CI) strategies to accomplish Second Language Acquisition (SLA) as defined by Krashen (1982) is gaining traction throughout World Language classrooms. By providing input to students that is comprehensible, yet slightly challenging, they can be introduced to new grammar and linguistic concepts that will enhance the acquisition process. However, teachers must use a variety of CI strategies in the classroom in order to be most successful. The CI strategies must also be tailored to the level that is taught; CI strategies should look different in a classroom of students at the novice level than they do in a ...

Bilingual Latinas Experiences Graduating With 4-Year Degrees, 2019 Michigan Conference
Bilingual Latinas Experiences Graduating With 4-Year Degrees, Patricia S. Costa
Andrews University Teaching and Learning Conference
This session presents the results of a qualitative research study about the achievement gap between bilingual Latinas and other ethnicities. Statistics show that merely about 18% of Latinos in the United States have a bachelor’s degree. Researchers claim the main hurdles for bilingual Latinas to graduate from universities are being undocumented citizens, lacking English proficiency, having economic hardship, having familial accountability, and experiences with discriminatory practices. The primary purpose of the research project is to describe the university experiences of six self-identified bilingual Latinas who earned 4-year degrees in universities in Michigan. The participants’ stories shine light into what ...

Getting To What Is: Poetry As A Genre Of Access For Multilingual Learners, 2019 Boston College
Getting To What Is: Poetry As A Genre Of Access For Multilingual Learners, Audrey A. Friedman, Joelle M. Pedersen, Chris K. Bacon
Teaching/Writing: The Journal of Writing Teacher Education
This paper explores the poetry writing of 15, multilingual ninth graders to construct a practitioner framework for analyzing writing as discourse with multilingual learners (MLs). Grounded in an understanding of poetry as a genre of access for both teachers and students, we asked: How does poetry—read as a specific, situated discourse—reveal linguistic and cultural competence among MLs in an urban, high-school classroom?
Using four tools of Critical Discourse Analysis—situated meaning, significance building, connections building, and identity building—we analyzed student poetry produced via an online mentoring platform. Through applying these lenses, three major themes emerged, which structured ...
Indonesian Adolescents Experience Of Parenting Processes That Positively Impacted Youth Identity, 2019 Education Science, Postgraduate Program, Yogyakarta State University
Indonesian Adolescents Experience Of Parenting Processes That Positively Impacted Youth Identity, Enung Hasanah, Zamroni Zamroni, Achmad Dardiri, Supardi Supardi
The Qualitative Report
Javanese culture has particular characteristics in terms of parenting, where parents have a higher position than that of their children as a whole. On the other hand, Javanese adolescents are like teenagers in general, where they need freedom of thought and expression during the process of developing adolescent identity. Both of these conditions pose problems for educators and parents about how to do appropriate care for Javanese adolescents from the teenager’s perspective in order to get a meeting point. Research on the practice of parenting in Javanese culture about the perspective of adolescents is still very rare. In the ...
An English Learner As A Cultural Broker For Youth Interviews, 2019 University of Vermont
An English Learner As A Cultural Broker For Youth Interviews, Cynthia C. Reyes
The Qualitative Report
In the field of student voice, listening is a notion that is made more complex when related to student participation and agency. To listen to who English learners are requires a reframing of these students against the deficit discourse that is often used to describe their linguistic competencies. Discourse analysis is employed to examine the translanguaging experiences of an adolescent English learner who assisted the researcher in interviews with his peers. This empirical piece asks the question of what researchers can learn when employing the use of students as brokers when conducting interviews. Translanguaging is considered an element of cultural ...
Co-Teaching: 201, How To Support Ells, 2019 Molloy College
Co-Teaching: 201, How To Support Ells, Andrea Honigsfeld Ed.D., Maria Dove Ed.D.
Many general education classroom teachers and English as a Second Language (ESL) specialists find themselves sharing classroom space as well as responsibilities for planning instruction, teaching, and assessing English Language Learners (ELLs). This service delivery model may be called pushin, team teaching, inclusion, or co-teaching for ESL. Emerging literature on collaborative teaching practices to support ELLs (Pardini 2006; Zehr 2006), and personal experiences as ESL co-teachers and professional developers, have led us to devise guidelines to jumpstart co-taught lessons.

From Co-Teaching Partnership To Mentoring: Innovative Ways To Build Teacher Capacity, Andrea Honigsfeld Ed.D., Vicky Giouroukakis Ph.D., Maria G. Dove Ed.D.
Picture a high school class that has English language learners (ELLs) from diverse cultural backgrounds with varied academic abilities and language proficiency levels. Now imagine that this class is being taught by a team of two teachers: one content-area teacher (English) and one English as a Second Language (ESL) specialist. Both teachers work together successfully to provide individualized instruction and support their students' language acquisition and content learning. The students are interested and actively involved in the lessons and are making consistent progress in terms of acquiring language proficiency an content knowledge.

Little is known about the vaccine-related health behaviors of healthy individuals. We surveyed healthy individuals attending a vaccine center to define the reasons behind vaccine declination when the vaccine is warranted under current guidance. Declination due to perceived risks of the vaccines were by far the most common rationale, suggesting continued need for public health educational campaigns.

Immigrant and refugee youth are in our schools in greater numbers than ever. Educators are required to educate all students to the same standards, even though they have often been exposed to violence and other difficulties throughout their journey to a new home. Many continue to face many on-going barriers as they arrive in our schools. Although this population is resilient and has many strengths, for some the burden of trauma is overwhelming, threatening their ...
