Leveraging the Science of Reading for Emergent Bilinguals: Equity in Literacy Instruction
With approximately 10% of U.S. public school students identifying as Emergent Bilingual students (EBs), our classrooms are embracing a transformation, giving rise to a new, linguistically diverse educational landscape. This shift, while enriching, uncovers unique opportunities for growth and learning. Consequently, the need for educators to craft targeted, culturally responsive teaching strategies is critical. When instruction is adapted to suit linguistic needs while acknowledging cultural heritage, students’ academic engagement and performance see a significant improvement.
In the face of such evolution, our comprehensive Education Insight, “Leveraging the Science of Reading for Emergent Bilinguals: Equity in Literacy Instruction,” serves as your compass. Unlock the vast potential of these students and positively influence their academic journey. This is your chance to join us in a transformative mission to redefine the long-term English Learner definition, paving the way to a future of inclusive and effective literacy instruction.
