Literacy Intervention for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Learners

October 10, 2017 3:00 PM ET A. Berry-Jones

Achieving College and Career Readiness for students of cultural diversity, linguistic diversity, and poverty presents numerous, oft-times seemingly insurmountable challenges. In schools where heterogeneity underscores the gaps, brain-shaming adds an additional burden for students at-risk. Equal access is not always equitable. Blended and personalized learning provides the ideal toolset for improving literacy outcomes through a data-driven, culturally appropriate RtI (Response To Intervention) implementation.

In this highly participatory edWebinar, Dr. Almitra Berry-Jones, author of the book Effecting Change: Intervention for Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Learners, will address the following questions:

  • What are othering and brain-shaming, and how do they affect the learning environment?
  • What does College and Career Readiness look like for students who have been traditionally disenfranchised?
  • Why do culturally and linguistically diverse learners require a culturally appropriate response to instruction and intervention?
  • How do you ensure equity for all rather than just equal access?
  • How will the new ESSA regulations impact achieving College and Career Readiness through RtI for culturally and linguistically diverse learners under the DeVos DOE?

There will be time to ask Dr. Berry-Jones your questions during the Q&A segment following her presentation. K-12 administrators, classroom and special education teachers, school psychologists, counselors, behavior specialists, and librarians as well as those curious about how culturally appropriate RtI improves a school’s learning and social environment are invited to attend this engaging edWebinar.
