Teaching to cultural and linguistic diversity requires careful and flexible planning, creativity, and a teamed approach that involves parents and all educational stakeholders in order to develop students’ language skills. Beginning with multiple, research-based strategies for multi-cultural environments, participants will develop their ability to analyze and plan with data to differentiate for multiple learner types and varying degrees of language support.

Student Learning Outcomes:

  • Practice and plan with the strategies that lead to effective and diverse learning environments in multi-cultural classrooms.
  • Plan flexibly using tools, resources, and new strategy to address the needs of second language learners.
  • Understand the relevance of a properly structured cultural environment in meeting the diverse linguistic needs of students.
