Special Focus Day on Creating Multilingual Spaces at the UKLA International Conference
This UKLA Special Focus day will draw upon recent national and international research
During the first decade of the 21st century there have been increasing numbers of bilingual children entering school. Most teachers in the UK now have pupils who speak more than one language. To give these children the best chance of success, we need to create classroom environments where multilingualism can be fostered as an educational resource. This UKLA Special Focus day will draw upon recent national and international research, and give opportunities for participants to engage in discussion and debate about how children’s multilingual literacies can be developed. The Day will be of interest to teachers, language and literacy coordinators, advisors, inspectors and managers as well as teacher-educators, researchers and publishers.
