Learn effective strategies and activities to increase your newcomer students’ inclusion and learning in the classroom

Please join CAL for this engaging and interactive two-day institute providing practical resources for building a welcoming environment, both socially and instructionally, for all students.

Given the increasing tide of newcomer youth entering U.S. schools, it is critical to address the cultural, social, and academic needs of these students to help them succeed in the classroom and beyond. Building on CAL’s decades of experience working with newcomers in educational and community settings, this institute focuses on two key components for optimizing success for newcomer students in the classroom:

  • Day One: Cultural Perspectives, Influences, and Key Resources

  • Day Two: Adapting Content Instruction for Newcomer Students
