The Think Bilingual Chat Room
Podcast interview with Dr. Erin Rodriguez, Assistant Professor of Educational Psychology, University of Texas at Austin.
Dr. Erin Rodriguez shares her research based insights on how Dual Language educational programs help English language learners from immigrant families. She explains the benefits of well implemented Dual Language programs on children’s well being and the benefits of multilingualism and multicultural understanding in our community. Dr. Rodriguez also provides us with important ideas on actions we can take to begin building a more inclusive multilingual and multicultural community on a local level even if national policies are pushing the nation in the opposite direction.
