research overview

  • Dr. Mileidis Gort brings an interdisciplinary orientation to her work, having been trained in Human Development, Sociolinguistics, and Education, with a focus on the language, literacy, and cultural experiences and practices of young bilinguals. Her program of research documents the complex and varied ways in which emergent bilingual children use their dynamic linguistic and cultural funds of knowledge to learn and interact with teachers and peers in school contexts where two languages are used for instruction. She also investigates teachers’ languaging practices in dual language classrooms, and the ways in which teachers draw on emergent bilingual children’s developing expertise and experiences to support their engagement with language- and literacy-based activities and experimentation with new language forms.
