At the author's request, only the abstract for this title has been posted online.
This action research project was designed to help me research and apply culturally-sustaining pedagogy, focusing primarily on strategies to support my Latinx, Spanish-speaking emergent bilinguals. In addition to general strategies to develop culturally-sustaining pedagogy for Latinx, Spanish-speaking emergent bilinguals, I researched best practices for supporting these students with learning disabilities, as well as strategies to provide culturally-sustaining literacy instruction. I then worked to apply those strategies during the 2020-2021 school year and analyzed my lesson plans, teaching journal, assignments and other materials, and observation feedback to determine my success. My results were mixed, showing that I have made some improvements but need to continue making efforts to learn about and provide culturally-sustaining teaching for my students. However, completing this project has helped me develop research and data-analysis strategies to continue professional development in this area and to address future concerns and need for improvement that will arise during my teaching career.
