research overview

  • Susan Hopewell's research foci include issues of language, culture, equity, and identity especially as they impact, or are affected by, bilingualism and related literacy practices at the elementary school level. Dr. Hopewell utilizes mixed-methods designs to conduct research focused on strengthening biliteracy education for Spanish – English bilingual children in the United States. Her current research studies examine the strategic use of Spanish during ELD literacy, the impact that teacher-student interactions have on bilingual writing development, the development of an instrument to guide general education teachers in their work with bilingual children, and a longitudinal K-5 biliteracy study aiming to reconceptualize the how we assess, interpret, and understand the development of biliteracy.
