Examining pre-service teachers' perceptions toward translanguaging in a teacher education program

This study explores student-teachers' perceptions about language use in the classroom, with a threefold goal to understand: what students think about translanguaging, how their perceptions about translanguaging relate to language ideology, and whether/not these predict self-efficacy for future teaching of emergent bilinguals. The 5-10 minute survey is anonymous, and students' input will be extremely valuable for providing insight into current teacher education.

Eligibility - In Teaching & Learning program and pursuing one of the following: EC-6 generalist, EC-6 bilingual generalist, EC-6 generalist with ESL/SPED supplemental, EC-6 generalist and SPED, ELAR 4-8, Math 4-8, Social studies/history 4-8, Science 4-8. Enrolled in student teaching and 18 years or older.
