A Bilingual Glossary for Administrators and Educators: English – Spanish Key Terms Describing Multilingual Learner Education Practices in New York State by Dr. Jasmin (Bey) Cowin

As the end of 2022 is approaching, I decided to design a “poster” and create a bilingual English-Spanish glossary as a resource for administrators and teachers working with Spanish-speaking families. The inspiration came from a text-heavy document by THE STATE EDUCATION DEPARTMENT / THE UNIVERSITY OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, Office of P-12 Key Terms Used to Describe Practices Related to the Education of ELLs in New York State, March 2016. As I read through the document, I thought about visually creating a simpler structure to unbundle the information in a visual way.

Feel free to share!
