Unkule, Kalyani – Frontiers: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Study Abroad, 2018

Medina, Adriana L.; Hathaway, Jennifer I.; Pilonieta, Paola – Frontiers: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Study Abroad, 2015
Teacher attitudes toward English language learners (ELLs) can affect what these students will learn.
