Charitonos, K. (2017). ‘Cultural Citizen Inquiry: Making space for the ‘everyday’ in language teaching and learning. in C. Herodotou, M. Sharples and E. Scanlon (Eds). Citizen Inquiry: A fusion of citizen science and inquiry learning. London, UK: Taylor and Francis

This chapter presents a small exploratory study undertaken as action research in two community schools in the UK that draws on a blended approach to language learning and utilises methods of inquiry learning (e.g., observation, data collection, reflection) along with web and mobile technologies to facilitate young people’s engagement in citizen-led inquiry with a focus on social and cultural issues. The chapter introduces the idea of cultural citizen inquiry as a method that may validate young heritage language learners’ search for identity, usually intertwined with heritage and culture, and also support them to engage critically with their everyday experiences.
