As part of their work with the Assessment and Evaluation Language Resource Center (AELRC) at Georgetown University, researchers at the Center for Applied Linguistics (CAL) recently launched two updated resources for world language and heritage language educators.
CAL has launched supplementary World Language resources to ensure that the revised 2021 Massachusetts World Languages Curriculum Framework is actionable and inclusive for all educators.
Dr. Kate Moran has been selected to lead CAL's English for Heritage Language Speakers (EHLS) and Adult Education department as the Director of Adult Language and Communication.
CAL researchers have developed a native language assessment tool for students of the Choctaw language in Mississippi. The project, "Annopa Tikbishtiya," or "Carry the Language Forward," is ensuring that the language flourishes and grows from generation to generation. "When you see a student demonstrate [proficiency in the language], it gives hope." -Jason Lewis
