Dr. Coady is an Associate Professor of ESOL (English Speakers of Other Languages) and Bilingual Education. Her research areas include second language and literacy development for English Language Learners (ELLs); and teacher education (preservice and professional development) for English learners. Dr. Coady’s research consists of: 1) a model of literacy engagement for ELL, immigrant Spanish-speaking families under a Ford Foundation grant (www.pirsc.org); and (2) mainstream, elementary teacher preparation for ELLs under a US Department of Education grant-funded study (2007-14), investigating the relationship between teacher preparation and achievement outcomes of English Language Learners (Project DELTA, www.education.ufl.edu/project-delta). Both of these projects involve the development of products to facilitate family-school-community partnerships (e.g., fotonovelas) and teacher education (video-production and guides).
