GATESOL in Action Journal will address the following multilingual students: U.S.-born bilinguals, Generation 1.5 students, immigrants, refugees, and international students.
This special issue, the first issue under the editorship of Drs. David L. Chiesa and Robert A. Griffin, is a response to the current climate in the U.S. and includes submissions that focus on the changes, innovation, and instructional strategies that have affected the way we think about language, language learning, and second language instruction from a diversity, equity, and inclusion perspective under the umbrella of educating the multilingual population during a pandemic.
