Art Museums as Translanguaging Spaces: ESL Students, Multimodality, and Identities
Wiley-Blackwell Publishing, Inc.
Informed by the ideas of translanguaging (Canagarajah, 2013) and multiliteracies (New London Group, 1996), an art museum project was incorporated into an English as a second language (ESL) writing course at a U.S. university allowing the participating students to experience language learning as a multimodal process with opportunities to ask questions, collaboratively interpret art, and make connections to their first languages and cultures.
