Anderman, Eric M.; Koenka, Alison C. – Theory Into Practice, 2017

Slater, Tammy; Mohan, Bernard – Theory Into Practice, 2010
Cooperation between English as a second or other language (ESOL) and content-area teachers, often difficult to achieve, is hard to assess linguistically in a revealing way.

Gregory, Anne; Cornell, Dewey – Theory Into Practice, 2009
