Papi, Mostafa; Rios, Angel; Pelt, Hunter; Ozdemir, Esra – Modern Language Journal, 2019
This study investigated the concept of corrective feedback in second language learning as a learning resource, recasting it as "feedback-seeking behavior." Dweck's (1999) mindsets, Korn and Elliot's (2016) achievement goals, and Ashford's (1986) model of feedback-seeking behavior were re-operationalized in the context of language…

Moore, Ashley R. – Modern Language Journal, 2019
Although most second or foreign language classrooms can be assumed to contain queer learners, research shows that educators often fail to create inclusive learning environments and outcomes for these populations.

Herazo, José David; Davin, Kristin J.; Sagre, Anamaria – Modern Language Journal, 2019
Because scaffolded feedback is a key component of dynamic assessment (DA) and is present in some forms of corrective feedback (CF), it can be unclear how the 2 frameworks differ. Further complicating the distinction, many second language (L2) DA studies have focused on how a teacher provides mediation as a series of prompts, usually in reaction to…

McManus, Kevin; Marsden, Emma – Modern Language Journal, 2019
This study advances previous research about the effects of explicit instruction on second language (L2) development by examining learners' use of verbal morphology following different types of explicit information (EI) and comprehension practice. We investigated the extent to which additional EI about the first language (L1) can reduce the effects…

The Seal of Biliteracy is as an initiative to incentivize and credentialize bi-/multilingualism in K-12 education in the United States. While it has been widely celebrated as a positive development in U.S. educational language policy, it is important to consider to what extent marginalized students benefit from this initiative. This critical…

The present study investigates to what extent first-language (L1) and second-language (L2) speakers use lexical futures, whether such forms provide evidence of development, and whether these forms are constrained differently from the present indicative (PI) according to linguistic predictors. It uses a combined approach through its…
