English as a Second Language & Bilingual Education

Area Faculty 

Faculty in the ESL and Bilingual Education Program prepare teachers, teacher educators, and researchers to critically explore pedagogical tools for teaching; theories (and the application of such theories) of language choice, language usage and second language acquisition; ways in which institutions (including and especially schools), communities, and individuals construct specific language and literacy practices as well as the implications of those practices; and the interplay of discourses in situated social encounters.
