TSL 552 Topic 4 Culturally Relevant Text Chart GCU
The purpose of this assignment is to analyze and articulate the importance of using culturally relevant texts in multiple languages in the P-12 bilingual classroom. Through this analysis, the student will describe select content from texts, as well as strategies to incorporate the text into a standards-based literacy lesson.
Complete the “Culturally Relevant Texts Chart” for five texts of your choice, which includes:
- Title of text
- Language Used
- Appropriate Grade Level
- Language Proficiency Standard
The chart will identify one specific instructional strategy you would use to teach each of the selected texts in a P-12 bilingual classroom. Each strategy should align with a language proficiency standard from your state.
In a 750-1,000 word essay, explain how you would incorporate each of these resources into your teaching.
Include 3-5 sources from your research that support your reasoning.
One reference could include an interview of your mentor teacher regarding bilingual education at a school you are involved with for your practicum/field experience. You may also talk to your mentor about your chart to elicit any feedback or suggestions.
