I am a huge fan of Dr. Stephen Krashen's work. Krashen is a linguist, education researcher and activist. He is also the professor emeritus at the University of Southern California.
I have used his research when writing papers and projects for class.
Over the last five years, I've been using his research to effectively
advocate for school libraries and librarians. His work has greatly
helped me when I have debated administrators and district officials on
the importance funding equity for the school library.
This is my favorite Krashen quote:
