Description

Translanguaging strategies in the classroom: bilingual and multilingual perspectives. This workshop aims at discussing the results of the research project including data from emergent bilingual students and their teachers in NY and emergent multilingual students and their teachers in the Basque Country. The aim of the seminar is to discuss the results of the project with faculty and students in GC Cuny so as to analyze the linguistic, cultural and educational factors that can explain both contexts.
