Book Description

February 15, 2006 1593113498 978-1593113490
A volume in Research in Second Language Learning

Series Editor: JoAnn Hammadou Sullivan, University of Rhode Island

Research as a Tool for Empowerment: Theory Informing Practice will be an edited volume that will include an array of research-based chapters that not only further the field of second/foreign language research, but that also provide practical implications to language classrooms in international and national settings.

Unlike previous anthologies in second/foreign language research, this proposed volume will present studies from various research paradigms: quantitative, qualitative, teacher-research, and mixed-methods research. Each of these three sections is tied together by the overall theme of empowerment.
