Presented at: CABE (CO) 2016

This keynote session will review the three pillars of dual language, but specifically address the importance of the third pillar, cross-cultural competence. In aligning with the CABE Conference theme, Multilingual Voices Por Un Mundo Mejor, the importance of valuing students' home languages will be explored through Dr. Medina's personal and professional experiences. In understanding that all students' voices are the gateway to literacy and high academic achievement in two or more languages, as dual language educators, we will better be able to advocate for each child, their family, and the community they live in.
