Description

For too long English-only policies within international schools have upheld colonial ideals. As educators, we have the responsibility to disrupt harm within systems and build more loving, nurturing spaces where our students can be their authentic selves.

We have the opportunity to cultivate dynamic multilingual ecosystems within our classes, through the open-hearted and strategic use of translanguaging. This interactive workshop will explore the dynamic translanguaging practices of our students, as well as the pedagogy to foster multilingual ecosystems within our classes where all our students can thrive.

As a result of participating at this institute, attendees can expect to:

  • Explore multilingual mindsets and begin to notice and disrupt monolingual bias within ourselves and schools.
  • Gain a wide repertoire of translanguaging pedagogies.

Target Audience:

  • Classroom Teachers (Early Years to Secondary) who want to build their
  • EAL Specialists who want to deepen their understanding of their student’s superpowers
  • Instructional Coaches who aren’t afraid to ask warm demanding questions
