Dr. Gloria Park, assistant professor of English and director of the M.A. in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) program, published “Adult English Language Learners Constructing and Sharing Their Stories and Experiences: The Cultural and Linguistic Autobiography (CLA) Writing Project,” in TESOL Journal.

The article analyzes how adult English Language Learners’ (ELL) lived experiences help construct identities. Dr. Park not only analyzes adult ELLs and their experiences, she utilizes narratives highlighting some of her own lived experiences as a teacher of adult ELLs.
