How do you support foreign-born students and bring immigration into the classroom? Participants learned how to empower immigrant students, create more welcoming classrooms and center the immigrant voice across the curriculum in the free virtual conference 2023 Immigrant Student Success: Strategies and Tools for K-12 and Adult Educators on July 11 and 12.
Hosted by The Immigrant Learning Center’s Public Education Institute with generous support from the Nellie Mae Education Foundation, this virtual conference featured experts from across the nation. Participants learned from presentations, interactive activities and discussions with speakers how to:
- Foster belonging, identity and agency in your students
- Create community in your ESOL class
- Develop a dynamic workforce development program
- Choose and use children’s literature featuring under- and mis-represented communities
- Incorporate immigration into your middle and high school social studies classes
- And much more!
Certificates of completion available by request. This virtual conference was for K-12 and adult educators, administrators, counselors, volunteers and librarians. Resources and videos will be available soon.
