Lead Speaker:

In this session, we will share research results on how translanguaging (the strategic use of two languages) is used by middle school teachers in South Texas to enhance their students’ understanding of the mathematical content. Additionally, we will show videos illustrating this practice, and we will discuss if it can be implemented in different settings.
