March 11 - ATESL Advocacy Tutela Workshop
Please join us for a 90 minute online webinar on March 11 at 6:30 pm Mountain Standard time for a presentation on diversity and inclusion in the ESL classroom. We will look at some ways ESL professionals create inclusive spaces, and investigate how we can begin conversations and create a classroom atmosphere which challenge assumptions and stereotypes. The presentation will also take a look at some newly created resources which introduce concepts of diversity and inclusion to the ESL classroom as well as how to implement them and address student concerns if they arise.
