University of Colorado Boulder

Dr. Mileidis Gort brings an interdisciplinary orientation to her research and teaching. Her primary research goals are to understand the nature of emergent bilingualism and biliteracy in early childhood, and to use that knowledge to influence pre K-12 teacher education and practice in order to create culturally- and linguistically-responsive learning contexts for emergent bilingual learners. Her scholarship converges at two interrelated lines of research: (a) the language and literacy processes of young, Spanish-English emergent bilingual children, and (b) instructional practices and educational policies that support the dual language, biliteracy, and academic development of emergent bilingual children. Visit Dr. Gort’s Early Childhood Bilingualism Research Lab website to learn more about her recent and current projects.
