Presented by Dr. Amy Heineke, join IDEA and Eduplanet21 for a webinar that takes a strengths-based approach to consider how to teach students from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds upon returning to school during the COVID pandemic. Deficit-based mindsets often unknowingly guide our daily practice with emergent bilinguals and immigrant-origin students. This tendency to focus on students' gaps or deficiencies is heightened following the COVID pandemic and related distance learning. With this webinar, we discard deficit-based viewpoints to consider students' experiences during the pandemic as resources for learning. We explore potential sources of background knowledge from home, community, and school and consider how to prioritize these student assets in curricular design to springboard their learning and achievement.
Illinois educators can earn one (1) PDH for live attendance at this event.
