Participants will learn engaging literacy practices that normalize bilingualism/multilingualism and challenge notions of gender, racial, and linguistic stereotypes through a variety of literacy experiences both in reading and writing. In this work, the importance of connecting to family and community literacies is emphasized as we navigate through this new terrain of remote/blended learning. The class will review how to critically choose children's books and introduce strategies for sharing books with children to increase opportunities to engage multilingually and multimodally. You will have the opportunity to plan and share how to bring these engagements to your work with students. This workshop is geared towards, but not limited to, mainstream classroom teachers, English as a New Language teachers, and bilingual teachers.
