Part 1 of the assignment consists on submitting a reading aloud lesson plan ( or any other type of lesson) in which you will use translanguaging in any language you’d like. Week #13 will prepare you and guide you through this assignment. Several samples have been attached to the assignment overview, and you will find more detailed instructions on blackboard, Week #13.
PART #1.
For this assignment, you will create and implement a lesson for your class using Translanguaging (Spanish, Chinese, Turkish, or any other language). A reading lesson in any content area will probably be the easiest way to implement translanguaging strategies, but you can also create any other type of lesson ( content, vocabulary, hands-on) if you prefer.
Attached, you will find sample lessons on read aloud activities, and a “Translanguaging Guide” document containing numerous examples that are applicable to any subject. Just to be clear, you don’t really need to create a whole new lesson by yourself, you can simply modify an already created lesson or a lesson from a book/ internet by adding translanguaging strategies to it.
To get full credit for the assignment, you are expected to include the following in your submission:
Lesson plan of the lesson ( you decide what format to use) + a sample of an activity that you will use with that lesson ( a hand-out)
A paragraph justifying the use of that lesson and the Translanguaging strategies you selected
A paragraph reflecting on the implementation of the activity once you administer the lesson. Please reflect on what worked well, and not so well, and on the modifications you will need to be added in the future.
For Part 2, you will select one of the topics that we have seen through this course and prepare a small meeting agenda/ PD for your colleagues or hypothetical colleagues, family members, or other members of the community. ( This is intended to be a small PD/ meeting that targets other adults and exposes them to one of the topics that we have seen in the class ( implicit bias, anti-racist education, culturally responsive teaching, fairness, social justice…)

Choice: written and shared in Spanish, English, Chinese…. or any other language you’d like to use ( or using translanguaging)
