How can all leaders and teachers of all content areas develop a culturally and linguistically responsive toolkit? Why is it important to have a common toolkit for working with language learners across a whole school? Discover the competencies that work for English Language Learners (ELLs) and how they can be leveraged to reach both ELLs and ALLs—the Academic Language Learners (ALLs) in any school. By systematically getting to know students’ backgrounds, educators can create more multilingual and multicultural schools. Join author Sarah B. Ottow to discuss how planning, teaching and assessing with a “Language Lens,” can make educators more proactive about working with language learners so that students can perform to their potential.
