This week I had the pleasure of conducting 2 workshops with the Department of Education and teachers from Providenciales, Middle Caicos, Grand Turk, South Caicos and North Caicos to explore Language Acquisition in the Linguistically Diverse Classroom.
Itâs not uncommon to find students who are coming to school with very little knowledge of the English language. Itâs important that teachers are equipped with the mindset and strategies to help their students thrive.
In our sessions, we explored:
âï¸Creating Safe, Inclusive and Supportive Environments
âï¸Understanding Diversity, Equity and Inclusion in Education
âï¸Oral Language and Vocabulary Development in the Early Years
âï¸Teaching English Language Learners
âï¸Stages of Second Language Acquisition
âï¸Approaches to English Language Learning
