Translanguaging is the concept/idea of supporting students to use their home languages to learn and access content.

Here’s another way to describe it:

Translanguaging can refer to a pedagogical process of utilizing more than one language within a classroom lesson or it can be used to describe the way bilinguals use their linguistic resources to make sense of and interact with the world around them.

I’ve shared resources on it over the years, and thought it would be helpful to bring them all together in a “Best” list.
