Multidisciplinary Breadth: The Many Facets of English as an Additional Language Teaching and Learning
Keywords:Applied Linguistics, Education, English as an Additional Language, Scholar-Practitioner
This editorial celebrates the longest issue of the BC TEAL Journal published to date, with nine articles covering 141 pages and reflecting the multiple settings and contexts of the journal’s readership. It also conceptualizes the field of English as an additional language (EAL) teaching and learning as the bringing together of applied linguistics and education to highlight the nexus of scholarship and practice and the positive impact this connection can make on transforming EAL teaching and learning. With this understanding, the editorial describes three major themes in the current issue related to identity, additional language writing, and post-secondary EAL supports. These themes, along with the journal’s growing readership and meaningful volunteer opportunities, are offered as evidence of the journal’s dedication to supporting BC TEAL’s mission and strengthening the field of EAL teaching and learning.
