Overview

Appropriate for those new to the topic and established scholars, this holistic text examines the nexus of advocacy and English-language teaching, beginning with theories of advocacy, covering constraints and challenges in practice, and offering a range of hands-on perspectives in different contexts and with different populations. Bringing together wide-ranging and diverse viewpoints in TESOL, this volume examines the role of advocacy through a social justice lens in a range of contexts, including K-12 classrooms and schools, adult and higher education settings, families and communities, and teacher-education programs and professional organizations. Advocacy in English Language Teaching and Learning offers readers a deeper understanding of what advocacy is and can be, and gives teacher candidates and educators the tools to advocate for their students, their families and communities, and their profession.

Reviews

...[T]he book underscores that advocacy can and must happen at all levels of our practice: from our daily interactions with our students and colleagues to working to change state law and federal policy. It also challenges us to accept the grave responsibility for advocacy we have as TESOL professionals... The book gives us the language and the tools to speak up and speak out on behalf of our students and our colleagues. - Dr Ester de Jong, University of Florida This book is a much needed collection for teachers and teacher educators in need of resources to develop their knowledge base about advocacy in English language teaching and learning. The authors provide different perspectives about issues related to advocacy for emergent to advanced bilingual students who are or have been classified as English language learners (ELLs). Authors address the preparation of teachers to advocate for ELLs, action research for advocacy in teacher education and in classrooms, and engaging co-advocates, among other relevant topics. This is a wonderful contribution to the TESOL field and beyond. - Luciana C. de Oliveira, University of Miami; President (2018-2019), TESOL International Association, USA Advocacy in English Language Teaching and Learning shows us the what, the why, and the how to effectively advocate for all students. The authors are engaged in research and practice, advocacy and instruction, administration and service on behalf of English learners. This book is a forum of multiple approaches, a demonstration of a range of actions, and a platform for the real stories of English learners in our schools. - Paul Boyd-Batstone, California State University Long Beach, USA
