Research Interests and Current Projects
Dr. Butler’s research focuses on second language and bilingual language acquisition and learning, with particular emphasis on the role of cognitive, metacognitive, and socio-cognitive factors in language learning.
Her interests include:
(1) the role of metacognition in language learning and instruction;
(2) assessments to measure English language proficiency as well as “academic language” proficiency among learners and teachers; and
(3) cross-linguistic and cross-cultural learning/teaching styles and strategies.
Dr. Butler is currently conducting research on English-learning students and their teachers in both theU.S.andEast Asia. One of her most recent projects involves examining and comparing various issues that have emerged as a result of the recent introduction of English language instruction at the elementary school level in various Asian countries.
Her research for this project is focused on:
(1) examining and assessing the qualifications of elementary school teachers who have been asked to teach English in select Asian countries;
(2) how best to assess young learners’ second/foreign language proficiency; and
(3) how to identify effective English learning/teaching methods and strategies given the cultural and social contexts in which instruction takes place in these countries.
She is also currently working on projects investigating second language acquisition and biliteracy acquisition among elementary school children in both theU.S.andAsia.
Dr. Butler received a National Academy of Education/Spencer Postdoctoral Fellowship for the 2004-05 academic year. In 2007-08, she received the National Institute of Japanese Language/Hakuho Foundation Fellowship.
