Creating an inclusive, linguistically, and culturally affirming classroom community is a central priority for effectively serving English learners. By providing students with mirrors to positively reflect their intersectional identities and windows to embrace the diversity of our world, we can create classrooms and communities that respond to our students’ strengths, needs, socio-emotional health and identities. This two-session webinar series, with embedded pre-session work, focuses on how teachers can enact Principle #1 of the English Learner Roadmap policy in their virtual or in-person classrooms. Teachers will learn specific skills and strategies for leveraging their students’ and families’ cultural and linguistic assets, celebrating and affirming identity, strengthening classroom community, and facilitating collaborative learning spaces.
