Connecting with Schools and Families of ELL

There is a strong need for schools and teachers to connect with families of English language learners. To facilitate this collaborative spirit, educators must encourage parents of all cultures to become part of the school culture. Think about what you would like parents to know as they partner with you in educating their child. What could parents share about their culture that would help the classroom teacher be more effective? Design a series of three presentations/activities for parents and students at your school wherein cultural diversity is honored and respected. Your plan should include a purpose for each activity, a description of the target group you are addressing, an explanation of the activity, a time frame, and the materials/resources needed to execute each activity.

Solution Summary

This has to do with how parents and other community members can help families of all cultures feel comfortable and collaborate in the school environment.
