Educational leaders are key to improving academic language development and academic achievement for multilingual learners. The purpose of this workshop is for school leaders to reflect on their school’s policies and systems in order to craft a personal leadership action plan that promotes equitable educational opportunities for multilingual learners. Specific topics addressed will include policy, instructional leadership, collaborative relationships between students, teachers, families, and data teams that are necessary for language learners to thrive. Participants will engage in interactive tasks related to equitable instruction for multilingual learners, discussions and reflections, video analysis, and action planning.
