Immigrant Student Success Online Workshops



 

It was very enlightening. I’m taking away many good ideas that I’ll share with my colleagues when we reconvene in the fall.

Immigrant Student Success: Models and Tools for K-12 and Adult Educators, a free online workshop hosted every July, is for teachers, administrators, librarians, counselors and volunteers to encourage the progress of immigrant and refugee students for the benefit of the whole classroom through interactive webinars, group activities and live exercises with experts. (See resources below.)

Between 2010 and 2030, immigrants and their children will account for 85 percent of net U.S. workforce growth. By 2050, one in three children will be either an immigrant or the child of an immigrant. America’s evolving classrooms highlight the vital role educators play in shaping the country’s future and the need to integrate culturally diverse students in our classrooms.

Immigrant Student Success grew out of an annual workshop titled Teaching Immigration Across the Curriculum hosted by The ILC Public Education Institute for Massachusetts teachers since 2004.

In 2012, the workshop debuted online and, since then, 1,200 educators from 44 states have interacted with 34 experts in an innovative format that mixes webinars, videos, lesson planning and group chats to offer a rich platform for learning and sharing in real time.

Materials from the July 11 and 12, 2017, online workshop as well as from previous years are listed below.
