  • Cultural Competence: Understanding the cultural backgrounds and experiences of multilingual learners to create a welcoming and respectful classroom.
  • Language Development: Exploring techniques to foster language acquisition, including supporting home languages and the development of academic English.
  • Differentiated Instruction: Participants will experience a model lesson that uses adaptive teaching methods to accommodate varying language proficiency levels and individual learning styles.
  • Support Services: Identifying and utilizing support services, such as ESL programs and language assessment tools.

This webinar is designed for educators, administrators, and anyone interested in fostering an inclusive, multilingual learning environment. Attendees will gain valuable insights and practical tools to ensure that multilingual learners thrive academically and socially.
