The Biliteracy Series provides various sessions to support Kindergarten through 2nd grade students as they develop biliteracy skills. The sessions will provide an opportunity for participants to explore all four language domains with a focus on reading and writing instruction that is designed specifically for students in a bilingual classroom. Participants will also build a deeper understanding for making metalinguistic connections and integrating sociocultural competence that is necessary for success in the bilingual classroom.
In this session, participants will:
review recommendations for text selection and key considerations.
explore culturally relevant literature and why it is important.
review considerations when selecting culturally relevant literature.
select a culturally relevant text for a lesson.
Please note that this course is presented in Spanish.
