Teaching the First Majority-Minority Generation
As a nation, we are moving quickly toward a minority majority in our public schools, with 20% of students speaking a language other than English at home. These students bring with them linguistic and cultural identities that schools must address. How are we preparing the next generation of teachers to support ELs in the classroom, and what are we doing to close the achievement gap between non-EL and EL students? Our panel will discuss these and other questions that are mounting in the field.
