The MoraModules Mission
For only $10 per month, educators have Dr. Mora's expertise in Spanish linguistics, Spanish/English literacy and biliteracy programs available at the click of a mouse.The purpose of Dr. Mora's MoraModules Website is to provide a comprehensive resource on the philosophy, methods and public policy issues in educating language minority students.
My objective is to create an easily accessible link between university scholarship, K-12 educators and the general public to disseminate current information about pedagogically sound principles and practices in language education. My greater purpose is to ensure equal educational opportunities for linguistically and culturally diverse students in public schools.
I believe that my perspective as an expert in bilingual cross-cultural education contributes to informed discussions of critical educational issues. Learn More
