CeLM Lecture: LITERACY DEVELOPMENT IN MULTILINGUAL CLASSROOMS: CHALLENGES AND OPPORTUNITIES

Professor Rhona Stainthorp will be giving a public lecture about multilingual literacy development. The event, hosted by the Centre for Literacy and Multilingualism (CeLM), aims to raise awareness of the challenges and opportunities multilingual children face when they learn how to read and write in more than one language.

Successful reading and writing involves coordinating word reading and spelling processes with language comprehension processes including vocabulary knowledge. Multilingual literacy involves coordinating these processes in at least two languages and two writing systems. We need to understand how the writing systems work to appreciate the challenges and opportunities faced by young literacy learners.

CeLM is proud to host a week of celebratory events from Monday 19 June to Friday 23 June. Events across the week will be open to a range of audiences and will mark the official launch for CeLM, an interdisciplinary research institute based at the University of Reading.

Open to all, admission free, booking required.
