- Webinar 1.6 “Make it Meaningful: Bringing Learning to Life with Culturally Relevant Teaching” on Wednesday, November 18 at 3:00PM
Most experienced teachers excel at integrating strong teaching methodologies, a challenging curriculum, and well-designed materials. Sometimes, however, we spend so much time on those aspects of teaching that we forget the most important part: the students! The presenter will discuss ways to increase student motivation and achievement through use of culturally relevant teaching techniques. By creating a bridge between English and students’ backgrounds, knowledge, and experiences, teachers can empower students intellectually, socially, emotionally, and politically. Though this webinar is grounded in research-based best practices for teaching diverse language learners, it will also share practical tips and classroom-ready activities.
