Warriner, Doris S.; Fredricks, Daisy E.; Duran, Chatwara Suwannamai – Theory Into Practice, 2020
Although there is now a good deal of research on whether, when, and how to teach Academic Language (AL), we still have a limited understanding of the various ways and reasons we might teach AL to refugee-background students enrolled in U.S. schools--and how to do so without devaluing their existing repertoires, resources, and lived experiences. A…

Farinde-Wu, Abiola; Butler, Bettie Ray; Allen-Handy, Ayana – Theory Into Practice, 2020
Considering Black women's historic contributions and enduring legacy in education, their continual disproportionate underrepresentation in US public schools is severely problematic.

Yoo, Monica S. – Theory Into Practice, 2019
This article examines how students from immigrant families position themselves during language brokering acts that blur the boundaries between home and school.

Miranda, Chandler Patton; Cherng, Hua-Yu Sebastian – Theory Into Practice, 2018
Immigrant students, one of the fastest-growing populations in US public schools, have been linguistically and culturally disadvantaged by accountability policies that rely only on standardized tests.

Miller, Angela D.; Murdock, Tamera B.; Grotewiel, Morgan M. – Theory Into Practice, 2017
Although research shows that higher-achieving students report engaging in cheating behaviors less frequently than lower-achieving students, the cheating rates among this population are still startling. Certain aspects of the context of being a high-achieving student support academic dishonesty. We investigate integrity among the highest achievers…
