I am currently conducting research in three areas: language assessment, parent connections related to TESOL and the use of authentic literature in second language learning classrooms.

Language Assessment: I completed a research project in Taiwan that was a joint initiative with the Taiwan Ministry of Education and the British Council. I presented the results at an international assessment conference

Parent Connections: Related to TESOL I have completed an article based on the term English Language Learner. This term does not acknowledge the linguistic contributions made by non-English speaking families residing in English speaking countries. I have also gathered most of the data related to a study of the linguistic landscape found on the outside of Boston public schools. The linguistic landscape can either engage or disengage families from schools.

Authentic Children's Literature: Along with a colleague, I have been examining the types of picture books which are most appropriate for use in ELT classrooms.
