By incorporating an understanding of bilingualism as an interactional experience that shapes cognition, educators have the opportunity to join a transformative mission to redefine the long-term English learner definition, paving the way to a future of inclusive and effective literacy instruction.
Listen to Lexia’s edWeb podcast during the first day of Emergent Bilingual Week as Dr. Young-Suk Kim (Professor and Senior Associate Dean at the School of Education, University of California, Irvine), Dr. Gigi Luk (Associate Professor, Department of Educational and Counseling Psychology, Centre for Research on Brain, Language, and Music, McGill University), Dr. Elsa Cárdenas-Hagan (President, Valley Speech Language and Learning Center), and Dr. Raj Chattergoon (Director of Efficacy Research) discuss the importance of a people-first approach, how bilingualism and executive functions interact to influence literacy outcomes, how the Science of Reading applies to emergent bilingual language and literacy instruction, and the importance of environmental factors.
Listeners gain exclusive insight from a group of leaders in emergent bilingual studies and understand how to apply reading research in their districts, schools, and classrooms to improve academic outcomes for students learning English.
