Endorsed by the AAUSC and published by Cengage, the Issues in Language Program Direction series strives to further AAUSC goals. The 2019 volume seeks to understand the reasons that large-scale paradigm change toward teaching language and culture as integrated and situated practices has not yet occurred. It evaluates why large-scale paradigm change is hard to achieve and presents models for curriculum development within paradigm change.

Johanna Watzinger-Tharp is Associate Professor in the Department of Linguistics at the University of Utah. She earned her MA and PhD at the University of Texas at Austin. Her research focuses on dual language immersion, L2 methodology and teacher education, and language variation, and has been published in scholarly venues such as Foreign Language Annals, the Modern Language Journal and Unterrichtspraxis/Teaching German. Her publications also include co-edited volumes and German language textbooks. In 2010, the American Council for the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) awarded her the Anthony Papalia Award for Excellence in Teacher Education. She has served in leadership positions of national professional organizations and serves as the co-chair of Utah’s World Language Council, which produced the Utah Language Roadmap for the 21st Century that helped establish Utah’s Dual Language Immersion Program.

Kristen Michelson (Ph.D., University of Arizona) is Assistant Professor of French and Applied Linguistics in the Department of Classical and Modern Languages and Literatures at Texas Tech University, and director of the first and second year French program. Her research is anchored in intersections between human experience and cultural texts, with a particular focus on pedagogical and technological innovations in foreign language teaching and learning that call explicit attention to affect, identities, and ideological discourses. Recent research focuses on the integration of multiliteracies pedagogies in foreign language curricula and collaborative meaning-making through digital social annotated reading.

  • This volume seeks to understand the reasons there has not been a large-scale paradigm change to teach language and culture as integrated and situated practices.
  • This volume provides all those with responsibility for language program direction and instruction with insights around the struggles that come with paradigm change in many collegiate language programs.
  • The contributions in this volume should awaken the field to the urgency of reasserting the relevance of second language (L2) education in individual learning endeavors and institutional practices, and should lead to the large-scale paradigm change that so many have called for before, ultimately making foreign language instruction an interdisciplinary humanistic enterprise.
