Presenters: Iliana Alanis, PhD, and María G. Arreguín, EdD
In this session, presenters will address how educators can provide equitable access to early childhood education by designing culturally and linguistically responsive instruction. Emphasis will be placed on strategies that promote quality language input that is comprehensible and connected to children’s funds of knowledge. We will discuss the significance of purposefully planned authentic instruction as the foundation for children’s learning.
