Language and Literacy Timeline
These materials will help teachers recognize their own values and implicit and explicit biases as well as how these may positively and negatively affect their teaching and learning.
Crafting Translanguaging Spaces
Translanguaging describes how bilinguals engage in flexible and fluid language practices to make meaning in different social contexts and an instructional approach. In this 20-slide presentation, Dr. Tian gives examples of how to use translanguaging in dual language learning programs.
Visceral Realism in Art: Promoting Bilingual Communities
How can educators’ personal art practices facilitate understanding of issues affecting immigrant bilingual learners? Using original paintings Professor Christian Faltis tells his own story and characterizes the Mexican experience in the U.S.
Funds of Knowledge
These instructional materials define and unpack "funds of knowledge" as well as "dark funds of knowledge". In addition, the instructional materials provide opportunities for identifying and practicing these types of knowledge, both through a personal perspective and an educator perspective.
BranchED seeks to support individual educator preparation programs (EPPs) and the field at large in reimagining and redefining “quality” preparation programs such that attention to issues of diversity and equity are explicit, embedded, and inextricably linked to high-quality performance.
The Resource Portal was created to support our community by providing resources such as instructional materials, online modules, podcasts, practice-based learning opportunities, research briefs, teaching video library, tool/toolkit, and webinars.
