Interdisciplinary biliteracy refers to holistic, dynamic literacy practices connecting content areas in two languages. This interactive session shows how teachers use standard-based talking, reading and writing across the curriculum and languages in flexible ways to provide equitable access to content knowledge for all students. The presenters will demonstrate how to design cross-linguistic connections at the text, sentence and word levels to further develop the academic language of the disciplines. Participants will also learn how to use the preview-view-review activity structure as an effective bilingual strategy to make complex content and text comprehensible for bilingual learners and provide opportunities for students to develop biliteracy in any content area.
