SCOLT 2020 Call for Papers: SCOLT is pleased to announce a Special Issue for 2020: Focus on Heritage Language Learners with co-editors Dr. Paula Garrett-Rucks (Georgia State University) and Dr. L.J. Randolph, Jr. (University of North Carolina at Wilmington)
More about the 2020 Special Issue: The ACTFL position statement on language learning for heritage and native speakers emphasizes the need for these learners to be given opportunities to develop their heritage linguistic and cultural skills in order to foster a society of global citizens who are fully bi/multilingual and bi/multi-literate. Successful programs that empower heritage learners require constant reevaluation of teaching practices, curricular models, and language policies. For this issue of Dimension, we draw upon decades of research that speak to the academic and social benefits of heritage language study, while also considering contemporary critical theory and contexts. We welcome empirical and theoretical papers that focus on curricular models that promote access to and success in heritage language learning including mixed classes of heritage learners and second language learners as well as courses developed specifically for native speakers and heritage learners; student support and placement at all levels; community engagement and applied learning; sociolinguistics; pedagogy; language policy; and other relevant subfields. In addition, we welcome papers from a variety of educational contexts, including K-12 and post-secondary; urban, suburban, and rural; and traditional and new gateway states for immigration.
Priority will be given to submissions received by the July 1st, 2019 deadline.
