Many schools throughout the country are enrolling newcomer English language learners (ELLs) for the first time, or do not have enough specialized English as a second language or bilingual certified teachers to work with this group of students.
Join AFT, Share My Lesson, Colorin Colorado to hear from expert practitioners about the particular needs of newcomer ELLs and to get tips, resources and strategies you can use right away to help ELLs adjust to their new surroundings successfully.
We know how instrumental it can be for educators and school administrators to create a welcoming and inclusive environment for newcomer immigrant students. But beyond providing language support, how can schools foster a sense of belonging and cultural sensitivity? This webinar will provide ideas you can implement in the short and long term. Building relationships with students and their families, as well as engaging in cross-cultural understanding, can go a long way in helping newcomer ELLs integrate into their new educational and social contexts. By embracing diversity and promoting inclusivity, schools can support these students to thrive academically and personally on their journey in a new country and educational system.
