Codemeshing and Multimodal Literacy: The LOOK Act's Translingual Potential

Friday, May 31, 2019 at 2:30 PM–3:15 PM EDT add to calendar
Session Abstract

This presentation examines how the LOOK Act overturned Question 2 to create unprecedented flexibility for ELE programs. It explores two forthcoming dual-language programs in disparate communities through the lens of Valdés “cautionary note” on dual-language education, suggesting a translingual alternative to SEI and DLE rooted in codemeshing and multimodal literacy.
