Multicultural Literature for Latino Bilingual Children: Their Words, Their Worlds
This Education Connections webinar will be held from 12:00-1:00 pm ET.
This presentation will discuss research-based classroom practices that explore the use of multicultural children's literature to support the linguistic, academic, sociocultural, and psychological development of Latino children in the process of becoming bilingual. The presenters will discuss a broad spectrum of issues related to the effective use of children's literature with bilingual learners, including identity development, critical pedagogy, biliteracy development, and holistic literacy instruction.
