Dual Language Picturebooks in Multilingual Classrooms

February 15 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Portrait of Nicola DalyWorlds of Words offers a professional learning opportunity with New Zealand Fulbright scholar, Nicola Daly. Join us for an interactive workshop for educators with time to explore:

• What are the different types of dual language picturebooks?
• What “hidden messages” might these books be sending in their format and design? What should teachers be aware of when selecting these books?
• How can these books be used in classrooms?
• What are the resources and initiatives in New Zealand to support Māori as an official language? What might we learn from these initiatives?

There will be time to explore dual language books in a range of languages, including a great selection of books from New Zealand.

Nicola Daly, a visiting Fulbright Scholar, is a senior lecturer at Te Hononga, the School of Curriculum and Pedagogy in the Faculty of Education, where she focuses on language learning and children’s literature. Her research explores New Zealand picturebooks and the linguistic landscapes of dual language picturebooks. Her books include Children’s Literature in Multilingual Classrooms and Children’s Literature in a Multiliterate World.
