Who are emergent bilinguals

    • Students who know different-named languages such as Spanish, Spanglish, and English.
    • Language learning is not about one language or the other, but simultaneously about leveraging students' full linguistic repertoire. 
    • Language as a living organism which adapts according to the context in which it is developed.
    • Many students of Color from immigrant backgrounds also carry the designated “English Learner” label.
    • Urgency to shift in perspectives and see students as falling on various points of the bilingual continuum.
