Found in Translation is a nice article in the most recent issue of Teaching Tolerance — and it has some great PDF printable posters, to boot!
Here’s an excerpt:
Fueled by two decades of historic immigration, American demographics are changing. Many school districts are often ill prepared to meet the needs of limited English proficient (LEP) students and families.
Teaching Tolerance created best practices for engaging LEP students and families in an effort to help administrators build a supportive learning environment for all students. They provide guidance for forming a comprehensive communication plan that puts LEP parents on equal footing with English-speaking parents. Our tips will help you steer clear of discrimination during student registration and create a leadership checklist to help your staff make sure the school environment is welcoming to English language learners (ELLs) and their families.
