Cui, Ruiguo; Teo, Peter – Language and Education, 2021
Dialogic education has become increasingly appealing due to the recognized value of dialogue for the development of students' thinking and knowledge.

Lall, Marie – Language and Education, 2021
Research across Myanmar's ethnic states has shown that large and well organised non-dominant ethnic groups such as the Mon, Karen, Shan and Kachin would prefer Myanmar's education system to offer MTB-MLE so that their children are able to start education in the mother tongue. This article engages with some of the overlooked voices of minorities…

Lawrence, Whitney J.; Mathis, Janelle B. – Language and Education, 2020
Current literacy assessments are focused on a single mode of meaning-making (reading and writing, whether oral or written) and assume that literacy and language are 'fixed systems'-- comprised of discrete skills that can be taught and measured in isolation. This validation and privileging of a single mode of assessment are most culpable in…

Field placement allows pre-service teachers (PSTs) to gain experience teaching culturally and linguistically diverse students. However, little is known about how PSTs engage with multilingualism during field placement. This article investigates how PSTs capitalise on their own as well as their students' linguistic repertoires during field…

Jang, Soon Young – Language and Education, 2020
Canada has been largely relying on immigration for population growth.
