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

Participants will receive proven strategies and practical resources they can use right away to create a welcoming environment for newcomer students and facilitate their learning. Designed for PreK-12 teachers, administrators, and other practitioners who work in educational settings with newcomer students and their families, such as social workers, counselors, and after-school specialists, who work in educational settings with newcomer students and their families, CAL encourages teams of educators and practitioners to attend.
