Explicit use of translation challenges long-held beliefs in bilingual education. However, recent research has shown that when bilingual middle school students collaboratively translate texts, they leverage their full language repertoires in developing reading strategies. Here, a team of university and teacher researchers present the results of two studies of explicit translation. The studies corroborate previous results, but also extend them with a focus on elementary-level students, reading comprehension scores, and translation activities within writing instruction.
