The book showcases concrete and adaptable writing assignments from a variety of learning environments in postsecondary, English-medium writing classrooms, writing centers, and writing programs populated by monolingual and multilingual students. By providing descriptive and reflective examples of how understanding translanguaging can influence pedagogy, Translingual Pedagogical Perspectives fills the gap between theoretical inquiry surrounding translanguaging and existing translingual pedagogical models for writing classrooms and programs.
Additional appendixes provide a variety of readings, exercises, larger assignments, and other entry points, making Translingual Pedagogical Perspectives useful for instructors and graduate students interested in engaging translingual theories in their classrooms.
