dc.description.abstractTeaching methodologies and materials play a vital role in helping the students (re)learn a new language as a second/foreign language as well as keeping learners interested and motivated throughout their learning journey. Being concerned about preserving the Persian language as my home language, I aim to investigate the teaching methodologies that three Persian teachers apply in their classrooms to teach a new language to different Persian language learners. The other focus of this study is to explore how sociocultural theory and the approach ‘funds of knowledge’ pave their ways into four Persian language classrooms. Triangulating this study focuses on the teaching and learning practices of three teachers and 12 language learners as the participants of this study. The other objective of this study is hearing the voices of the language learners, all of which will be integrated into the eight components of the SIOP model.
