Bridging Language Gaps: ILA Resources to Revolutionize Your Classroom With Translanguaging

In today’s diverse classrooms, the presence of multiple languages and varied cultural backgrounds among students can be challenging for educators who strive to create inclusive learning environments. Conventional language practices might inadvertently limit students' full expression, which can lead to the belief that students’ diverse linguistic abilities are a detriment to their ability to succeed academically

Translanguaging

Enter translanguaging—a pedagogical approach that recognizes and leverages the entirety of a student's linguistic repertoire, encompassing all languages they know. Educators who embrace translanguaging as part of their practice establish learning environments that value each student's unique linguistic identity and foster a supportive environment where students feel empowered to express themselves freely, enhancing overall literacy abilities along the way.

Centering the Languaging and Literacies of Students in the ELA Classroom, speaker Kate Seltzer will offer practical insights drawn from real classrooms, offering educators the necessary tools to adopt a translanguaging approach in their classrooms.
