from Education Week
The New America Foundation has put together a glossary of language learner terms that aims to offer clarity on what educators mean when they talk about dual language learners, English language learners, long-term English learners, and other groups of students The piece kicked off a 10-week series of blog posts related to the education of dual language learners in public schools. The glossary helps highlight the "substantial diversity that exists" among language-learners, wrote the author, Ashley Simpson Baird, a former bilingual teacher.
