Engaging Bi/Multilingual Students in Inquiry & Argument Writing
Assets-based, translanguaging classroom
How Read.Inquire.Write. supports this work
Bilingual and multilingual learners who are newcomers to classroom instruction in English or who have low proficiency in English need further support. Here we offer accommodated materials and suggestions for planning for an assets-based and translanguaging classroom that invites newcomers to share their experiences and insights by drawing on all the knowledge and meaning-making resources they bring to the classroom. Through the planning tools offered here, you can organize your classroom to take advantage of the resources available to you in your context to support all of your students to participate.
