With each passing day, classrooms become more diverse, and yet equity remains a nagging concern for many US schools. Has anything changed over the past century about the ways we educate culturally and linguistically diverse learners? With increasing enrollment of immigrant and immigrant-origin students in this time of increasing anti-immigrant rhetoric, what does deeper learning and equity look like in academically rigorous classrooms that meets the needs of a diverse student populations? What are successful strategies and what can we do better for linguistically and culturally diverse students?
These important questions will be addressed front and center in this hands-on experiential workshop! In this interactive session, participants will:
1) see, feel and explore an equitable and accessible classroom that meets the needs of culturally and linguistically diverse learners;
2) time-travel to learn the good, bad, and ugly about historical approaches to educating diverse learners;
3)participate in engaging classroom experience that models both deeper learner for diverse students and access for students of diverse backgrounds;
4) generate a practical list of strategies to promote equity and deeper learning for linguistically and culturally diverse learning in their own schools and communities.
5) reflect on lessons learned for addressing equity and deeper learning;
6) gather insights, tools and resources can to take back to their home schools and classrooms.
