Avary Carhill Poza's research examines the ways peer groups and classroom contexts shape the language learning experiences and outcomes of linguistic minority youth. Her current scholarship, based in New York City public high schools, focuses on variable opportunities for adolescent English learners to engage their multilingual repertoires in learning academic English.
Carhill Poza's graduate courses are designed to foster critical inquiry and reflexivity in teaching practice. She engages multidisciplinary perspectives on second language development and the education of linguistic minority students with particular focus on the role of sociocultural factors in language use and language learning.
