This afterword to the 10th anniversary special issue of the Journal of Immersion and Content-Based Language Education provides a retrospective account of the origins of the journal and the research published in it over the past decade. It also considers future directions in the field in light of the articles showcased in the special issue. The paper begins with a summary of past articles according to program type represented, topic areas, geographic contexts represented, and type of article (i.e., qualitative, quantitative, mixed methods study, or literature review/theoretical discussion). It provides a similar inventory of the special issue articles. The remainder of the afterword discusses four prominent themes that are reflected in the special issue papers. They address the need for (1) continued focus on content and language integration; (2) teacher education and professional development; (3) equity, access, inclusion, and differentiation; and (4) student language use beyond the classroom and school.
