Emergent Bilinguals in the Public Education System
To kick off Emergent Bilingual week 2022, Lexia curriculum and language experts Sara Nájera and Javier Ruiz explore the Emergent Bilingual experience in the context of the American public school system.
The challenges Emergent Bilinguals face are often invisible to English-only speakers. With more than five million Emergent Bilingual students in our classrooms today, it is important to take a step back and ensure that all students are getting the support they need to succeed. In this webinar, Sara and Javier provide new context and perspective on how the public school system treats Emergent Bilinguals, and what we, as educators, can do to help every student thrive.
- How Emergent Bilinguals are defined and identified, and the impact of those labels
- What ongoing systemic barriers Emergent Bilinguals face in the public education system
- How educators can better meet Emergent Bilinguals’ linguistic and academic needs
