Centering the Languaging and Literacies of Students in the ELA Classroom

Date: January 17, 2024

Time: 05:00PM - 06:00PM

You must be registered to participate!

In this ILA webinar, Kate Seltzer will explore the three strands of a pedagogy that encourages students' translanguaging—an empowering practice that enables them to express themselves and construct meaning using all of their language practices, including their home language—and views it as an asset for effective learning. Seltzer will offer examples from research that illustrate the pedagogy at work in middle school and high school ELA classrooms, offering a glimpse into the transformative impact of embracing students’ linguistic diversity.

Takeaways include

    • Knowledge of translanguaging as a theory, including how it can disrupt current ideologies about students' language practices and literacies
    • Insights into translanguaging pedagogy through real classroom examples
    • Ideas for how to apply a translanguaging lens that will reimagine the “English” in ELA instruction

Seltzer will participate in a live Q&A following her recorded presentation, which was previously available exclusively to registrants of an ILA Intensive on translanguaging.

Who should register: School-based educators, principals, teacher educators, and preservice teachers
