CALL FOR APPLICATIONS FOR RESEARCH PRIORITIES GRANTS:
PHASE I-–REVIEW OF THE LITERATURE
ACTFL has launched a new initiative to develop a set of research priorities for foreign language education that will enable our profession to:
- identify the key areas in which research is currently needed in foreign language instruction and learning to inform and improve classroom practice;
- attract researchers to conduct research in these key areas; and
- sponsor this research through funding, publication, and dissemination of research results to the field and other stakeholders.
This endeavor is being undertaken by ACTFL with the guidance of current President Eileen Glisan and a task force of leading researchers in foreign language education: Rick Donato, University of Pittsburgh; Joan Kelly Hall, The Pennsylvania State University; Judith Liskin-Gasparro, University of Iowa; Miguel Mantero, University of Alabama; Marcia Rosenbusch, Iowa State University; Paul Toth, Temple University; and Leo Van Lier, Monterey Institute of International Studies, and Editor, The Modern Language Journal.
In Phase I of the project, ACTFL is inviting applications for grants to conduct REVIEWS OF THE LITERATURE in the following research priorities categories:
CATEGORY #1: High Leverage Teaching Practices
CATEGORY #2: Integration of Content and Language Learning K–16
CATEGORY #3: Learning Outcomes and Processes
CATEGORY #4: Foreign Language Teacher Development (K–16)
