Bilingualism as a resource
Lunch & Learn Mon Mar 13 noon – 1pm
Are all bilinguals the same? What do we as instructors need to know about our bilingual
students? How can we support bilingual students in monolingual classrooms? Join us
for an exploration of these questions and more. Professor Alfredo Urzúa (Department
of Spanish and Portuguese) will discuss the social and individual aspects of bilingualism
as well as issues related to bilingualism in the classroom, including strategies that
teachers can adopt to capitalize on the skills that bilingual and multilingual students
bring to the classroom.
This event is part of the CTL series on Teaching the Whole Student.
* Graduate students are welcome to attend all CTL events, space permitting. If an
event fills up, GTAs will be moved to the waitlist in the order in which they registered.
