Students have always had diverse learning needs, but today's classrooms--with K-12 students from a wide array of linguistic and cultural backgrounds and experiences--are more diverse than ever before. Educational professionals examine concepts of culturally responsive teaching, language acquisition, and psychology to better support English language learners. They explore ways to create a learning environment that values all linguistic and cultural backgrounds, supports language development and acquisition, and ultimately enhances the learning of all students. Through an interactive case scenario, educators apply strategies to learn about a student's language, culture, and community, and add resources to their professional library on supporting linguistically diverse students.
