About The CATESOL Journal

The CATESOL Journal is the official, refereed journal of the CATESOL organization. CATESOL represents teachers of English language learners throughout California, promoting excellence in education and providing high-quality professional development.

The CATESOL Journal has two main goals:

  1. To present engaging, relevant, practitioner-oriented articles to a readership of teachers, teachers trainers, researchers, program administrators, and graduate students in California contexts.
  2. To support and mentor authors who teach, conduct research, administer programs, and/or study in California contexts.

Articles in The CATESOL Journal focus on theory, research, pedagogy, and educational policy related to the teaching of English to speakers of other languages, including US-born bilinguals, Generation 1.5 students, immigrants, and international students. The CATESOL Journal aims for inclusivity—focusing on all educational levels, from kindergarten to university, as well as on adult school and workplace literacy settings.
