Download Free Translanguaging with Multilingual Students PDF by Ofelia García Full Book and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2016-07-18 with total page 200 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Looking closely at what happens when translanguaging is actively taken up to teach emergent bilingual students across different contexts, this book focuses on how it is already happening in classrooms as well as how it can be implemented as a pedagogical orientation. It extends theoretical understandings of the concept and highlights its promises and challenges. Using a Transformative Action Research design, six empirically grounded ethnographic case studies describe how translanguaging is used in lesson designs and in the spontaneous moves made by teachers and students during specific teaching moments. The cases shed light on two questions: How, when, and why is translanguaging taken up or resisted by students and teachers? What does its use mean for them? Although grounded in a U.S. context, and specifically in classrooms in New York State, Translanguaging with Multilingual Students links findings and theories to different global contexts to offer important lessons for educators worldwide.

Download Free Multilingual Perspectives on Translanguaging PDF by Jeff MacSwan Full Book and published by Channel View Publications. This book was released on 2022-07-13 with total page 558 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book brings together a broad, interdisciplinary group of leading scholars to critically assess a recent proposal within translanguaging theory called deconstructivism: the view that discrete or ‘named’ languages do not exist. Contributors explore important topics in relation to the deconstructivist turn in translanguaging, including epistemology, language ideology, bilingual linguistic competence, codeswitching, bilingual first language acquisition, the neurolinguistics of bilingualism, the significance of language naming to Indigenous language reclamation efforts, implications for bilingual education and language rights, and the effects of translanguaging on immersion programs for endangered languages. Contributing authors converge on support for a multilingual perspective on translanguaging which affirms the pedagogical and conceptual aims of translanguaging but rejects deconstructivism. The book makes a valuable contribution to the development of translanguaging theory and will be required reading for scholars and students interested in one of the most vibrant and vital debates in contemporary applied linguistics.

Download Free Expanding Literacy Practices Across Multiple Modes and Languages for Multilingual Students PDF by Luciana C. de Oliveira Full Book and published by IAP. This book was released on 2019-11-01 with total page 127 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Literacy practices have changed over the past several years to incorporate modes of representation much broader than language alone, in which the textual is also related to the visual, the audio, the spatial, etc. This book focuses on research and instructional practices necessary for integrating an expanded view of literacy in the classroom that offers multiple points of entry for all students. Projects highlighted in this book incorporate multiple modes of communication (e.g., visual, aural, textual) through various digital and print-based written formats. In addition, this book particularly focuses on the possibilities that this expanded view of literacy holds for emergent to advanced bilingual students and specific scaffolds necessary for supporting them. Our focus is specifically multilingual students as classrooms across the United States and other English-speaking countries around the world become more and more diverse. The book considers educators as active participants in social change and contributors to our overall goal of social justice for all. This book grew out of work conducted by doctoral students and former doctoral students, now faculty at various universities, from the Language and Literacy Learning in Multilingual Settings (LLLMS) specialization in the Department of Teaching and Learning at the School of Education and Human Development at the University of Miami, Florida. The most outstanding feature of this work is the breadth of examples for integrating literacy in the classroom, as well as the specific instructional strategies provided for supporting multilingual students. This volume is unique in tackling both literacy and specific scaffolding for multilingual students. Additionally, the chapters here collectively aim to go beyond describing research to also provide a variety of classroom connections for practitioners and implications for teacher education.
Download Free Translanguaging for Emergent Bilinguals PDF by Danling Fu Full Book and published by Teachers College Press. This book was released on 2019-02-22 with total page 145 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Translanguaging for Emergent Bilinguals is a thorough examination of the development, evolution, and current realities of educating emergent bilinguals in U.S. classrooms. Through engaging vignettes, readers follow the experiences of emergent bilinguals in a variety of monolingual settings, tracing the challenges encountered by both the students and the schools that serve them. The authors argue that the future of emergent bilingual education lies in an inclusive translanguaging pedagogy. By embracing home languages and cultures, this approach nurtures the development of multiple literacies, enabling individuals to thrive academically, socially, linguistically, and intellectually. The text begins by showing how the authors evolved from monolingual language educators to translanguaging educators and ends with concrete takeaways for successfully using this approach in different education settings. “This book offers an uplifting alternative view of the lives and education of language-minoritized students. The authors present here a practice-based approach to translanguaging for all types of teachers of emergent bilinguals.” —From the Foreword by Ofelia García, The Graduate Center, City University of New York “A fascinating volume offering practical as well as theoretical insights into translanguaging pedagogy.” —Li Wei, UCL Institute of Education, University College London “Contributes significantly to our understanding of the nature of translanguaging and its potential to transform the education of emergent bilingual students.” —James Cummins, University of Toronto

Download Free Multilingualism and Translanguaging in Chinese Language Classrooms PDF by Danping Wang Full Book and published by Springer. This book was released on 2018-11-03 with total page 127 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book presents new research on Chinese as a Second Language (CSL) teaching from an ethnographic classroom study on classroom translanguaging practices that highlights the policy and pedagogical implications of adopting a creative and principled multilingual approach. Drawing on a case study from Hong Kong, it analyses naturally observed language patterns in CSL classrooms and the attitudes of students and teachers towards prescribed classroom language policies, and thereby demonstrates the importance of mixing Chinese, English and students’ home languages to achieve successful second language learning. It discusses the nature and guiding principles for classroom translanguaging research and provides research tools that will enable second language teachers to examine their own language practices. The author argues persuasively that second language teaching practices and policies must reflect the current reality of language use and the diverse learning needs of multilingual students. This book will appeal to teacher educators and researchers in fields such as second language acquisition, foreign language teaching and language policy.

This book was released on 2016-10-01 with total page 344 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Der vorliegende Band beschaftigt sich mit methodologischen und terminologischen Problemen der gesellschaftlichen Mehrsprachigkeit sowie ihrer Auswirkung (Sprachvariation, Sprachwandel, Sprachkonflikt). Die einzelnen Artikel greifen immer wichtiger werdende Entwicklungen mehrsprachigen Zusammenlebens und Handelns auf. Besondere Aufmerksamkeit gilt den Auswirkungen von migrationsbedingten Sprachkontakten. Der Band liefert sowohl moderne theoretische Ansatze, als auch Fallstudien aus dem In- und Ausland, die zur Diskussion des Themas Mehrsprachigkeit in Europa, vor allem in urbanen Raumen, beitragen. Durch die geographische Breite der Beitrage entsteht ein Panorama, das Vergleiche zulasst und zum Verstandnis der sprachlichen und kulturellen Wechselwirkungen beitragt, die durch Migration entstehen. Die Beitrage zeigen auf, dass zwei- oder mehrsprachige Gemeinschaften keine Gefahr fur die aufnehmende Kultur sind, sondern - im Gegenteil - als Bereicherung begriffen werden konnen.

Download Free Rethinking the Education of Multilingual Learners PDF by Jim Cummins Full Book and published by Multilingual Matters. This book was released on 2021-09-06 with total page 603 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Over the past 40 years, Jim Cummins has proposed a number of highly influential theoretical concepts, including the threshold and interdependence hypotheses and the distinction between conversational fluency and academic language proficiency. In this book, he provides a personal account of how these ideas developed and he examines the credibility of critiques they have generated, using the criteria of empirical adequacy, logical coherence, and consequential validity. These criteria of theoretical legitimacy are also applied to the evaluation of two different versions of translanguaging theory – Unitary Translanguaging Theory and Crosslinguistic Translanguaging Theory – in a way that significantly clarifies this controversial concept.
Download Free Translanguaging in Science Education PDF by Anders Jakobsson Full Book and published by Springer Nature. This book was released on 2022-03-27 with total page 275 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This edited volume explores diverse translanguaging practices in multilingual science classrooms in Hong Kong, Lebanon, Luxembourg, South Africa, Sweden and the United States. It presents novel opportunities for using students’ home, first or minority languages as meaning-making tools in science education. It also invites to explore the use of language resources and other multimodal resources, such as gestures and body language. In addition, it discusses and problematizes contingent hindrances and obstacles that may arise from these practices within various contexts around the world. This includes reviewing different theoretical starting points that may be challenged by such an approach. These issues are explored from different perspectives and methodological focus, as well as in several educational contexts, including primary, middle, secondary levels, higher education, as well as in after-school programs for refugee teenagers. Within these contexts, the book highlights and shares a range of educational tools and activities in science education, such as teacher-led classroom-talk, language-focused teaching, teachers’ use of meta-language, teachers’ scaffolding strategies, small-group interactions, and computer-supported collaborative learning.

Download Free Theoretical and Applied Perspectives on Teaching Foreign Languages in Multilingual Settings PDF by Anna Krulatz Full Book and published by Channel View Publications. This book was released on 2022-06-21 with total page 317 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This book promotes linguistically responsive foreign language teaching practices in multilingual contexts by facilitating a dialogue between teachers and researchers. It advances a discussion of how to connect the acquisition of subsequent foreign languages with previous language knowledge to create culturally and linguistically inclusive foreign language classrooms, and how to strengthen the connection between research on multilingualism and foreign language teaching practice. The chapters present new approaches to foreign language instruction in multilingual settings, many of them forged in collaboration between foreign language teachers and researchers of multilingualism. The authors report findings of classroom-based research, including case studies and action research on topics such as the functions and applications of translanguaging in the foreign language classroom, the role of learners’ own languages in teaching additional languages, linguistically and culturally inclusive foreign language pedagogies, and teacher and learner attitudes to multilingual teaching approaches.

Download Free Innovative Approaches to Teaching Multilingual Students PDF by Mary Amanda Stewart Full Book and published by IAP. This book was released on 2022-12-01 with total page 251 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The purpose of this book is to guide teachers to understand theory related to teaching multilingual students and put it into practice in their classrooms. Throughout each chapter, the authors uniquely bring together relevant theory regarding language (e.g. the multilingual turn, second language acquisition, translanguaging) literacy (e.g. reading comprehension, new literacy studies, multimodality), and culture (e.g. funds of knowledge, culturally sustaining pedagogies). The chapter authors (practicing ESL, bilingual, world language, language immersion, and mainstream teachers) share how they are innovatively teaching multilingual students by understanding theory and applying it to their instructional setting. The audience for this book is teachers of multilingual students who are in the dynamic process of language acquisition. This includes TESOL/ESL, bilingual, language immersion, and world language teachers, as well as mainstream teachers who teach bilingual students—essentially all educators in modern society. The book is of particular interest for teacher education programs since each chapter explains theory and then illustrates exactly how one teacher put that theory into practice in teaching multilingual students.
