Language, Literacy, and Learning in STEM Education brings together a range of applied linguistic researchers and projects that address the interface among language studies, science, engineering, and education. The book is premised on the concept that science is of central importance in the twenty-first century and that linguistic knowledge can contribute to the description, understanding, education, and practice of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. The book introduces various linguistic methodologies and discusses ways in which these have been used to promote STEM education. It offers a first collection of such studies and a wide-ranging introduction to ways in which applied linguistics can serve as a resource for questions, projects, and issues situated within the fields of STEM. The book should be of interest to applied linguists working in STEM, as well as STEM professionals working in education and administrative or funding bodies interested in supporting and enhancing educational practices in the sciences.

Table of Contents
“This book demonstrates efforts to emphasize the fact that applied linguistics is crucial in the attempt to improve interdisciplinary education. The awareness of interdisciplinary interaction among language researchers, science and engineering educators, and scientists will in turn benefit our students, who can meet the expectations of their courses, school policies, and also the discourse community. The integration of applied linguistics with STEM will be particularly useful in strengthening their learning. Any language teacher and scientist who aims to engage their students in the process of learning would benefit from reading Language, Literacy, and Learning in STEM Education. In conclusion, this book provides substantial knowledge and an insight into the relationship between applied linguistics and STEM disciplines. The book is also successful in exemplifying the power and potential of using linguistic approaches to address STEM inquiries. The dissemination of collaborative endeavors as reported in this book is useful, benefiting STEM
professionals, applied linguists, and other language professionals.”
