Language Development Sessions
Over half of the world’s population speaks more than one language. As we think about curriculum, classrooms and instructional pedagogy, it is important to assess how current practices meet the needs of our ever diversifying linguistic population. Through intentionality, we can leverage students’ linguistic assets to build a stronger learning community and use strategies that allow all students to participate in rigorous curriculum, regardless of language proficiency.
