Understanding Diverse Bilingual Learners: The Need for a Transdisciplinary Lens
Amy A. Weimer (University of Texas – Rio Grande Valley, USA), Mario Gil (University of Texas – Rio Grande Valley, USA), and J. Joy Esquierdo (University of Texas – Rio Grande Valley, USA)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-5225-8283-0.ch009
The chapter synthesizes findings from diverse disciplinary perspectives to make the case that we need a new lens to better serve the diversity of bilingual learners. Drawing upon theories and findings from studies by educators, child developmentalists, and neuroscientists, but moving beyond any one disciplinary perspective, the authors aim to create a unity of new knowledge developed of theories from across disciplines. This approach is exactly what is needed to address the complexity of factors surrounding bilingual learners. Taking a transdisciplinary approach will allow us to move closer toward an understanding of the many factors affecting bilingual children and families, and this new knowledge can be applied to promote their educational and lifelong success.
