T&L 2900: VIR: EL Practices for Equity

Could it be that the policies, programs, and practices of educators in the U.S. are factors that cause adolescent English learners with limited or interrupted formal schooling to underachieve? This course describes the beliefs, practices, and policies that have shaped the minority student experience over time, the effects of the separation between school and family on multicultural learners, the important differences between "educación" and education, the ways in which culturally relevant pedagogy can better support learning for these students, and how to incorporate cultural awareness into the classroom. This course focuses on the unique needs of English learners and what educators can do to best support their academic achievement, describing how educational leaders can inadvertently create barriers to the success of English learners.
