Reading with Cecilia Espinosa and Laura Ascenzi-Moreno: Rooted in Strength: Using Translanguaging to Grow Multilingual Readers and Writers Online

Translanguaging is a new way of thinking about language and the language practices of emergent bilinguals. Translanguaging recognizes that emergent bilinguals need to use their entire linguistic and sociocultural repertoires to make sense, to construct meaning, to learn, to express, and to reflect. It is a way of thinking that takes the whole student into consideration and allows you to root your teaching practices in students’ strengths.

Cecilia Espinosa is Associate Professor in Early Childhood and Childhood Education at Lehman College.

Laura Ascenzi-Moreno is Associate Professor in the Childhood, Bilingual, and Special Education Department at Brooklyn College.
