About the Journal
GATESOL Journal—the academic peer-reviewed journal of GATESOL—is an engaging, relevant, practitioner-oriented journal meant to support the readership of teachers, teacher educators, researchers, program administrators, and graduate students. The journal strives to support and mentor authors and readers who teach, conduct research, administer programs, and/or study in language teaching contexts. The multifaceted journal articles in GATESOL Journal could focus on theory, research, pedagogy, and educational policy related to the teaching of English to speakers of other languages. GATESOL Journal will address the following multilingual students: U.S.-born bilinguals, Generation 1.5 students, immigrants, refugees, and international students.
The spring 2022 issue of GATESOL Journal provides language teachers, administrators, community developers, curriculum designers, and advocates of the emergent multilingual population in Georgia, the U.S., and around the world with insights on developing inclusive practices. Inclusion is “the act of creating environments in which any individual or group can feel welcomed, respected, supported, and valued to fully participate. An inclusive and welcoming climate embraces differences and offers respect in words and actions for all people'' (YW Boston Blog, 2019, para. 8). This issue will showcase how inclusive practices can be supported in language, culturally and linguistically responsive teaching practices, and peace-oriented education.
