Translanguaging is a term that started to gain educators' interest in the 21st century due to its benefits for multilingual learners. Research shows that translanguaging practices implemented by teachers support multilingual students to create meaning in academic content. At the same time, their linguistic systems and identities are being valued in an English-dominant education system. This project investigates teaching practices by multilingual and monolingual teachers that foster translanguaging practices in their teaching to support multilingual learners. These teaching practices are related to supporting multilingual learners’ personal and home experiences in the classroom to understand academic content and be valued.
