Translingual Pedagogical Perspectives: Engaging Domestic and International Students in the Composition Classroom

Translingual Pedagogical Perspectives addresses the movement toward translingualism in the writing classroom and demonstrates the practical pedagogical strategies faculty can take to represent both domestic and international monolingual and multilingual students’ perspectives in writing programs. Contributors explore approaches used by diverse writing programs across the United States, insisting that traditional strategies used in teaching writing need to be reimagined if they are to engage the growing number of diverse learners who take composition classes.
