The Multilingual Lab Hour, and the Lab Instructors who work in that role, support each student by embracing their rights to their own language while supporting Code-Meshing and Code-Switching techniques, helping to “translate” English and other linguistic systems and Discourse conventions, prompts, and expectations, and advocating for student ownership of education, ideas, and voice. This position functions as a guide, translator, and advocate for students within their course texts and other aspects of their academic lives, as well as serving to legitimize the amazing multicultural experience and funds of knowledge that bilingual and students learning English as a second or other language bring with them into the classroom.
