Teacher Voices: Immigration, Language and Culture Videos
Brought to you by the College Board Advocacy & Policy Center, the National Writing Project and Phil Delta Kappa International, Teacher Voices: Immigration, Language and Culture takes on the critical issue of educating immigrant students and English language learners. Immigration, Language and Culture provides an on-the-ground view of the strengths these students bring to our schools and country through the lens of six classroom teachers. Each of the teachers is featured in a report (to be released in May 2011) and a six-part video series.
The videos feature:
- Brandy De Alba, Teacher, Theodore Roosevelt Elementary School, Stockton, Calif.
- Anthony Finney, Teacher, The Flushing International High School, Queens, N.Y.
- Sharon Ornelas, Teacher, Thomas Edison High School, Minneapolis, Minn.
- Yumi Matsui, Teacher, Life Academy of Health & Bioscience, Oakland, Calif.
- Wilma Ortiz, Teacher, Amherst Regional Middle School, Amherst, Mass.
- Dolores Perez, Teacher, Cromack Elementary, Brownsville, Texas
Watch these videos and learn more about the challenges these teachers and their students face, best practices and recommendations on how to implement the solutions required to give immigrant students and English language learners the education they need and deserve.
The report and videos are part of the College Board Advocacy & Policy Center’s Teachers Are the Center of Education/Teacher Voices series, created to highlight the importance of teachers in student learning and amplify their voices in the national conversation on school reform.
