Edmonds-Wathen, Cris; Owens, Kay; Bino, Vagi – Language and Education, 2019

The overall aim of the study reported in this…

Kirsch, Claudine – Language and Education, 2018
There is a recognised need for multilingual pedagogies as these capitalise on children's resources.

Sinclair, Jeanne; Lau, Clarissa – Language and Education, 2018
It is common practice for K-12 schools to assess multilingual students' language proficiency to determine language support program placement.

Hurdus, Jeremy; Lasagabaster, David – Language and Education, 2018
Most agency-focused research in language-in-education policy compares codified intention to reality.

Operating under the notion that ontologically grounded methodologies are susceptible to missing…
