INTERNATIONAL CALL FOR MANUSCRIPTS – Bilingual Basics
Submission Deadline: August 1st, 2019
Special Topic Issue:
Innovative, Collaborative and Transformative Bilingualism/Multilingualism for All
Bilingual Basics is a publication of the Bilingual-Multilingual Education Interest Session of TESOL. Its audience includes all types of bilingual education teachers, researchers, teacher educators and graduate students in TESOL. As such, the publication has an international scope.
Studies show that a lack of adequate and appropriate learning resources/materials has consistently widened achievement gaps between emergent bilinguals and their monolingual peers. The implementation of bilingual programs are often constrained by a reality of unequal resource allocation and limited educational funding. To navigate the intricacies of school politics and equity issues surrounding bilingual education, teachers are compelled to be innovative and resourceful so that they can build bilingual curriculum out of their meager funding and resources. Lack of access to high quality instructional material calls for teacher engagement and commitment to collaboration and student success. Lastly, sustaining bilingual education as a needed response to social justice requires all shareholders to challenge the status quo and transform student learning experience.
We welcome all submissions that highlight and build on the idea of bilingual/multilingual students' knowledge and skills as valuable learning resources. In addition to innovative and creative ways of adapting materials and activities, we are also interested in identifying evidence-based 'best practice' teaching strategies. Student work with teacher commentary are welcome as well.
This Call for Manuscripts address bilingual education at all instructional and institutional levels, and in all the national and international contexts in which bilingual education takes place, including but not limited to: best practices in developing curriculum and instruction, as well as case studies, autobiographies, book reviews, teaching tips, lesson plan samples across different educational levels (K-16, graduate, adult, refugee education) and disciplines (social studies, science, language education, etc.).
Manuscripts written in languages other than English are particularly welcome, and while they are subject to the availability of multilingual reviewers, we would make every effort to find a reviewer.
The deadline for submissions is rolling. Manuscripts should be approximately 600 to 1,500 words in length and, when applicable, must be formatted according to the guidelines of the American Psychological Association Publication Manual, 6th Edition.
E-mail submissions to Dr. Ching-Ching Lin at firstname.lastname@example.org. Acceptance will be notified on or about August 31st.
