Aims & Scope

The Tapestry Journal's objective is to disseminate emerging research and best practices and seeks articles and commentaries concerning any aspect of educating English language learners in P-12 classrooms in the contexts where English is the main language of instruction, education approaches, standards-based education, best practices in teaching language and content, technology-assisted instruction, assessment, accountability issues, counseling, social services, and community initiatives. The journal reaches out to those who assist ELLs in their daily lives and those who prepare for such a career. The editors are particularly interested in manuscripts that focus on the following:

  • Research and Theory pertaining to the education of English language learners in mainstream classrooms;
  • Effective Practices impacting classroom instruction, student achievement, clinical experiences, and student or family services; and
  • Commentaries describing policies, practices, issues, and challenges affecting the education of English language learners.
