We use research-based classroom practices as examples to demonstrate how to authentically engage emergent multilingual learners and support their linguistic development and disciplinary knowledge.</p> Dr. Lucía Cárdenas Curiel, Autumn Manzo, Alejandro Sifuentes, Lara Becker Copyright (c) 2024 Bilingual Review/Revista Bilingüe https://bilingualreviewjournal.org/index.php/br/article/view/460 Wed, 24 Apr 2024 00:00:00 +0000 Transforming Post-Secondary Classrooms with Translanguaging Pedagogy and Practice https://bilingualreviewjournal.org/index.php/br/article/view/500 <p>In this paper, I reflect on the need to provide equitable learning opportunities for multilingual students in post-secondary education (PS). Educators must adopt a translanguaging pedagogy to successfully promote and implement translanguaging strategies, specifically codemeshing, which allows multilinguals to challenge socially accepted dominant languages, like English, and develop and strengthen their critical literacy skills. I pose two questions that guide my critical reflection on why and how post-secondary institutions (PSIs), educators, and students benefit from translanguaging pedagogies and strategies: (a) What do translanguaging scholars say about the transformative properties of translanguaging pedagogies in PSIs? (b) How can a translanguaging strategy, like codemeshing, better prepare PS students to develop and strengthen critical literacy skills? I critically examine how transformative translanguaging pedagogies can equip multilingual students with the critical literacy skills needed in this ever-evolving 21st-century world.</p> Sara Abi Villanueva Copyright (c) 2024 Bilingual Review/Revista Bilingüe https://bilingualreviewjournal.org/index.php/br/article/view/500 Wed, 24 Apr 2024 00:00:00 +0000 La integración de las ciencias y la ingeniería en aulas bilingües de doble inmersión https://bilingualreviewjournal.org/index.php/br/article/view/506 <p>This study explores the use of a professional development program (PDP) to address the realities of multilingual students and teachers in bilingual and dual language (BDL) education, with a focus on situating science and engineering (S&amp;E) practices in BDL education. The program was taught by a multilingual and multicultural team of authors using translanguaging practices and was attended by 24 K-5 BDL teachers from Massachusetts and Puerto Rico. The study investigates teachers' development and implementation of curriculum materials during the summer and fall of 2021 and examines how teachers included biliteracy and bilingual practices in their S&amp;E activities. The study also explores teachers' expressions of the constraints on integrating S&amp;E within BDL education. Statistical analysis suggests that the PDP led to advancement in teachers' understanding of how to include S&amp;E principles in their classrooms. The study identified different ways that BDL education teachers approached the<br>integration of S&amp;E principles within BDL education.</p> Dr. Marialuisa Di Stefano, Dr. Elenita Irizarry-Ramos, Dr. Rafael Cuevas-Rivera, Dr. Alberto Esquinca, Dr. Idalis Villanueva-Alarcón, Yokaira Lopez-Tifa Copyright (c) 2024 Bilingual Review/Revista Bilingüe https://bilingualreviewjournal.org/index.php/br/article/view/506 Wed, 24 Apr 2024 00:00:00 +0000 Los Pañuelos https://bilingualreviewjournal.org/index.php/br/article/view/513 Alfredo Arevalo Copyright (c) 2024 Bilingual Review/Revista Bilingüe https://bilingualreviewjournal.org/index.php/br/article/view/513 Wed, 24 Apr 2024 00:00:00 +0000 Folklorico https://bilingualreviewjournal.org/index.php/br/article/view/514 Alfredo Arevalo Copyright (c) 2024 Bilingual Review/Revista Bilingüe https://bilingualreviewjournal.org/index.php/br/article/view/514 Wed, 24 Apr 2024 00:00:00 +0000 Folklorico https://bilingualreviewjournal.org/index.php/br/article/view/515 Alfredo Arevalo Copyright (c) 2024 Bilingual Review/Revista Bilingüe https://bilingualreviewjournal.org/index.php/br/article/view/515 Wed, 24 Apr 2024 00:00:00 +0000 Todo, Todo https://bilingualreviewjournal.org/index.php/br/article/view/507 Jonathan Lloyd Copyright (c) 2024 Bilingual Review/Revista Bilingüe https://bilingualreviewjournal.org/index.php/br/article/view/507 Wed, 24 Apr 2024 00:00:00 +0000
