Raymonde Sneddon: Becoming biliterate in school, family and community
Becoming biliterate can have an impact on children’s achievement in school, on their personal identity and their cultural confidence. Raymonde Sneddon will present the findings of her research into children learning to read using dual language books and becoming bilingual authors. She will also share her practical experience, ideas and resources for using multilingual materials developed over 35 years of working with families as well as mainstream and complementary schools to develop children's skills in all their languages.
Raymonde Sneddon was a teacher in Hackney for 17 years, specialising in working with bilingual children, their families and communities. She was a teacher educator and a research fellow in the Cass School of Education at UEL for 22 years and has been directly involved in the complementary school sector in a range of capacities since the late 1980s. She has an MA and a PhD in Applied Linguistics from Birkbeck. Her research has focused on multilingualism, multiliteracy, community languages and complementary education. She is the author of Bilingual Books – Biliterate Children (UCL-IOE Press).
