ACTFL has announced Phase III of its Research Priorities Project. Phase III of the ACTFL Research Priorities Project supports empirical research projects or dissertation studies in five priority areas that are critical to improving foreign language education:
  • Research Priority Area #1: Integration of Language, Culture, and Content
  • Research Priority Area #2: Foreign Language Teacher Development 
  • Research Priority Area #3: Classroom Discourse 
  • Research Priority Area #4: High-Performing Language Programs 
  • Research Priority Area #5: Language Use in the Community 
Mary Lynn Redmond, ACTFL President, stated, “ACTFL is excited to announce this next phase of the Research Priorities project as we continue our efforts to support research that is pivotal in our field to inform and improve classroom practice in PK-16 settings. We encourage researchers to become involved in this important initiative for our field."

The Research Priorities Project is being co-directed by Eileen W. Glisan, Indiana University of Pennsylvania, and Richard Donato, University of Pittsburgh. ACTFL is calling for proposals for research projects that address the current research priority areas. Proposals must be received electronically by ACTFL by May 20, 2014. The Research Priorities Task Force will then review proposals and select projects. Learn more about this initiative.
