Join a panel of experts on multilingual, emergent bilingual, and newly arrived learners for an interactive discussion on how to promote equity through community.
Promoting Equity Through Community
Feeling a sense of belonging is essential to all learning. For early childhood and K-12 education professionals, ensuring that each learner feels visible, connected, and understood is an ongoing process deeply rooted in the concept of equity. By elevating the experiences of multilingual, emergent bilingual, and newly arrived learners in US schools, early childhood and K-12 education colleagues have an opportunity to exchange practices that promote equity and improve learning outcomes for all students.
In this interactive webinar, participants are invited to engage in a critical discussion about the power equity has on elevating the quality of education for all students. Drawing on the professional and personal experiences of our panelists, we will engage in conversation about current challenges and opportunities for promoting belonging for learners and their families of all backgrounds. Together, participants and panelists will explore ways to engage with their communities to identify effective practices and generate shared solutions that support equitable learning experiences.
