This dissertation examined how language ideology of secondary English Language Development Teachers impacts instructional practices within their classrooms and how school systems impact the instructional practices of ELD teachers. Through a comparative case study analysis, nine teachers from three school districts in Utah participated through completing a language ideology survey, participating in three semi-structured interviews, recording four ELD lessons, and providing relevant artifacts from those lessons. Qualitative analysis of this data revealed the language ideologies of the teachers, connections between their language ideology and instructional practice, and an understanding of how system-level factors, such as school and district leadership, influence ELD instructional practices. Strategies are provided for stakeholders at various levels in order to implement practices that align with heteroglossic language ideology.
