Emergent bilinguals, or English language learners (ELLs), currently represent 10 percent of all students in US public schools. By 2025, one in four students will be an emergent bilingual. How can educators help to ensure the success of this growing student population?
From this edWebinar, viewers will:
- Gain an overview of today’s emergent bilingual population—some of the statistics may surprise you
- Learn about the asset model of education—why it’s necessary and how it supports bilingualism
- Discuss the difference between multicultural and culturally responsive—an important distinction
- Review six characteristics of culturally responsive teaching—from understanding accent varieties to incorporating education technology
Educators will benefit from strategies that they can apply to their own culturally responsive classrooms. This recorded edWebinar is designed for K–12 teachers, instructional coordinators, curriculum directors, and school and district leaders.
