Moore, Jason; Schleppegrell, Mary – Theory Into Practice, 2020
In this article, we show how close attention to language throughout a socio-scientific investigation supports upper elementary Arabic-speaking students to learn English while participating in valued disciplinary practices in science. Engagement in reading and writing with a focus on language also enables them to bring critical perspectives to the…

Martínez, Ramón Antonio; Mejía, Alexander Feliciano – Theory Into Practice, 2020
The definitions of "academic language" available to teachers and teacher educators often invoke generalized assumptions about the supposed gap between complex, discipline-specific forms of language and the everyday language of Latina/o/x students. In this article, we advance an alternative hypothesis -- that Latina/o/x students boast…

Spycher, Pamela; Girard, Vanessa; Moua, Bao – Theory Into Practice, 2020
Among the many approaches proposed for closing opportunity and achievement gaps is supporting student's academic language development.

Flores, Nelson – Theory Into Practice, 2020
In this article, I argue that academic language is a raciolinguistic ideology that frames racialized students as linguistically deficient and in need of remediation. I propose language architecture as an alternative framing of language that can serve as a point of entry for resisting these raciolinguistic ideologies in both research and practice.…

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.

Fránquiz, María E.; Leija, María G.; Salinas, Cinthia S. – Theory Into Practice, 2019
The Bilingual Education Act was passed in 1968 to address the challenges faced by emerging bilingual students in U.S. schools.
