Dougherty & Schulze (2023) discusses the importance of providing language-focused instructional support for Emergent Bilingual Learners in order to help them access content, understand academic texts, and engage critically in English. The authors propose using text analysis informed by systemic functional linguistics to identify the language used in schooling, which needs to be made visible to students. They also emphasize the need for teachers to critically analyze texts to uncover dominant perspectives.
