Generation 1.5 in Canada: Multiple Perspectives on a Shifting Demographic
Co-Edited by Hetty Roessingh, PhD and Scott Douglas, PhD
Generation 1.5 is fast becoming a topic of research endeavour and classroom
significance as the numbers of these students escalate exponentially in
major school jurisdictions and post-secondary institutions across Canada.
The literature characterizes this demographic category as consisting of
individuals who immigrate as children or are the Canadian born children of
immigrants, are educated in the local school system, and have life
experiences that cover two or more languages, countries, and cultures. The
common feature of this demographic is that the first language, or home
language, is not English or French.
This themed issue addresses this topic from various perspectives including
but limited to:
Language and literacy
Academic Language Proficiency
Curriculum, pedagogy and classroom practice
Transitions to higher education
Provision of Services
We encourage a broad range of methodological approaches and theoretical
frameworks, including case studies, program descriptions, classroom
practice, and other qualitative, quantitative and mixed methods papers.
A 250 word abstract outlining the paper is due March 31, 2011 and should be
sent to hroessinucalgary.ca.
To review author guidelines, visit the journal Website:
www.teslcanadajournal.ca and click on bottom right 'Information for Authors'.
Papers are due July 1, 2011.
Queries for the special issue can be sent to Hetty Roessingh
