Candidates provide support and advocacy for ELLs and their families and understand the history, laws, and policies of ESL teaching.
Assessment: 50 pts.
Due: Session 3
Teachers can use their learning to observe how their school succeeds or not in the work of welcoming students and families to the school and supporting student learning.
Students have studied about assumptions, privilege, and conscious and unconscious bias. They will now visit places in their school to assess how well their school makes people feel welcome.
Sit or stand in the places you choose and notice how quickly parents and visitors are assisted with what they need. Note clues to the attitudes and willingness to help diverse people quickly. Are some made to wait? Are they greeted with smiles? Does the staff treat all visitors in the same way?
Take notes on what you see and hear. Note if some people are ignored or dealt with on a surface level. Write your observations and bring them with you to session 3.
