Making Cultures Visible

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

As the demographics of our schools and community continue to diversify we need to equip our classrooms and schools with the tools for newcomers to succeed. In this session, you will learn about the importance of supporting culture and language cohesively in ESL programming, and how culture can directly impact second language acquisition. I will also talk about the projects that St. Theresa Catholic middle school created within Elk Island Catholic Schools to reinforce this topic; a Cultural Centre and a Community Support Night both directed at supporting second language acquisition and newcomers to Canada. ​ I believe sharing our journey would be beneficial to all schools sharing the same struggle!
