English Language Learners (M.Ed.)

The ELL program faculty and affiliated faculty are researchers and teacher educators, who embrace a diversity of research methods and theoretical stances to research and teach topics related to the development of multilingualism and biliteracy. We view multilingual students’ language and literacy learning as distinctive and unique from monolingual students’ learning, which includes cultural, cognitive, social, political, identity-oriented, and individual influences and processes. We view students in our program as partners and future colleagues. Our vision is actualized through collaborations with our students, partnering schools, community organizations, and our vibrant Vanderbilt community.
