International symposium on low educated second language and literacy acquisition (LESLLA) held in Minneapolis

MarthaBPatsyV.jpgThe 7th International LESLLA Symposium was held at the University of Minnesota this past weekend. Patsy Vinogradov (Ph.D. student) and Martha Bigelow (associate professor), both of the Department of Curriculum and Instruction co-chaired the annual meeting, with nearly 250 attendees. LESLLA: Low Educated Second Language and Literacy Acquisition is an interdisciplinary and international forum of researchers, teacher educators, and practitioners who share an interest in research on the development of second language skills by adult immigrants with little or no schooling prior to entering their new countries. This meeting will be held in Finland next year.
