  • Language ideologies, policies, and practices
  • Promotion, maintenance, and development of minority and heritage languages
  • Impact of language loss on individuals' perception of culture and identity
  • Implementation and outcomes of immersion, transitional, and two-way bilingual programs
  • Use of students' native languages in the classroom
