This presentation focuses on Cognate Strategy Instruction (CSI) in the translanguaging classroom. Participants will explore CSI methods: identification of Spanish-English cognates, recognition of specific cognate patterns, inclusion of students’ languages and cultures, instructional activities including close reading, raps, and games. Participants will explore teaching cognates to unlock academic texts, increasing emergent bilingual students’ comprehension in both languages. We document the effectiveness of CSI in several research studies we have conducted and in our newly released book.
