Back to school is a time of excitement and new beginnings, but it often brings challenges. Many of our nation’s multilingual learners are anxious about performing well during the upcoming school year, and many of their teachers aren’t sure how to best help them succeed. 

Listen to Dr. José Viana, former Director of the Office of English Language Acquisition, as he hosts a panel of educational leaders from across the nation to discuss strategies to better support our emergent bilingual learners’ academic and linguistic growth. 

With the school year just beginning, now is the time to ensure effective student support is in place. Dr. Viana and the panelists share best practices and examples that can be implemented in your classrooms to improve the student learning experience, as well as student academic success. Listeners learn how to: 

  • Create a welcoming classroom environment
  • Use asset-based approaches to learning
  • Engage families
  • Improve outcomes through differentiated lessons
  • Communicate expectations and language goals
  • Maintain a positive learning experience


This edWeb podcast is of interest to K-6 teachers, school and district leaders, and ELL/ESOL specialists.
