Supporting Latino Multilingual Students: Asset-Based Practices

School systems mistakenly label students that have not reached full proficiency in English as “English Learners (EL)”; however, this label is a misnomer and obscures the fact that these students are multilingual and multicultural. When students are mislabeled as such, they are educated and perceived from a deficit-oriented framework. This session will focus on fostering and supporting multilingual students of Latino descent by tapping into the many assets that these students bring to the classroom.
