Grade Level
Welcoming newcomer students – immigrants or refugees– to our classrooms requires targeted and compassionate interventions to foster feelings of belonging and empowerment. This survey course offers insights, ideas, and strategies to support student newcomers and their families. You’ll create a resource guide for families, and a Newcomer Kit to empower students to navigate their new school. Explore language development strategies with multi-cue and comprehensible input approaches to learning English, and deepen your awareness of the needs of newcomer students with learning disabilities. Plan language input and output strategies as practice opportunities for English language development. You will leave this course with a broad appreciation for empowering student newcomers and their families with the tools they need for success in their new schools and communities. 

This course format builds from module to module in a way that allows you to work through each of the essential ideas in smaller, more focused segments. You’ll find the same great resources and applicable assignments, distributed over 10 modules.
