Translanguaging? What in the world is that?

Translanguaging? What in the world is that?

September 13, 2016

Hello, WinkWorld Readers,

A few of you are as excited about translanguaging, as I.  In this post, I am including some resources which have come to me.

First, my friend and  colleague, Ruthie Wienk, of South Dakota State University will be sharing selected videos, which she has created for  a linguistics class, which she teaches for Black Hills Special Services (BHSS)/Technology in Education (TIE).  Thank you to Dr. Joe Hauge for permission to share these videos, and a special thanks to Ruthie.  I will begin posting Ruthie’s videos in a few days. And, no, she is not related to me.  In this class, she uses the following text:

Freeman, D. E., & Freeman, Y. S. (2014). Essential linguistics: What teachers need to know to teach reading, ESL, spelling, phonics, and grammar 2nd ed. Portsmouth, NH: Heinemann.


What Is Translanguaging? by Francois Grosjean and Ofelia García.


Translanguaging: Practice Brief for Educators, from Joanna Yip & Ofelia García, Ph.D. of The Graduate Center, City University of New York.   In addition, a quick search on Google will lead to many other resources.


TESOL will be providing a webinar, Wednesday, October 19, 2016, 10:30 to 12:00 EST from Tatyana Kleyn, Kate Menken, and Maite Sanchez.

Registration deadline, October 16, 2016

And, I love this one posted below.  I do know where it came from, but I believe I found it on Chris Faltis’ Facebook pages. Thanks for sharing, Chris.
