Course Introduction

Translanguaging pedagogies can be transformative for teaching and learning by making students’ diverse linguistic resources a meaningful part of classroom discourse. These pedagogies encourage students to use their full linguistic repertoire, as well as multimodal resources (like drawings, gestures, physical models), for meaning making and expression. Yet, in institutional settings like schools, “academic” English is often privileged over other resources. In this workshop, we will learn about translanguaging theory and pedagogies, and we will explore ways that STEM teachers (including multilingual and monolingual teachers) can integrate translanguaging in their classrooms.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe translanguaging theories.
  • Identify opportunities for translanguaging in STEM curricula.
  • Plan for instruction informed by translanguaging theories and pedagogies.
