On the Podcast: The Transformative Power of Translanguaging in Literature with Carla España and Luz Yadira Herrera

blog _ Podcast _ España_Herrera _ The Transformative Power of Translanguagin In Literature

Today on the podcast we’re joined by Carla España and Luz Yardia Herrera, co-authors of En Comunidad: Lessons for Centering the Voices and Experiences of Bilingual Latinx Students. Heinemann colleague Jaclyn Karabinas joined Carla and Luz to talk about choosing texts that speak to and honor the multilingual students in your class. Throughout their conversation, they describe the importance of translanguaging, provide helpful tips for choosing multilingual texts while teaching remotely, and explain how you can teach these texts even if you yourself are monolingual.
