What We're Reading - May 2, 2018

In the spirit of Continuous Learning, we are proud to offer this bi-weekly newsletter of curated articles that directly impact our work with English Language Learners. We hope you find this resource useful as you continue your work of supporting our students around the country. 

Since publishing our last edition on April 18th, we have launched our series on family and community engagement for English Language Learners. Our latest episode of Highest Aspirations features Renata Germino, who brought international cooking classes hosted by new immigrant families to Charlottesville, VA. We were also thrilled to collaborate with Valentina Gonzalez on a new blog post about connecting families of ELLs to schools.

We'll be releasing more great content on family and community engagement every Wednesday through the month of May on the ELL Community section of our website. Stay tuned!
