Celebrating Cultural Diversity in Burlington

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This session will explore the growing diversity in Burlington's schools.  We will review demographic trends in the district and share the ways that staff already recognize and celebrate diversity in our schools.  In addition, we'll discuss some of the unique strengths that linguistically and culturally diverse students can bring to the clasrroom, as well as some basic religious or cultural notes that staff should be aware of.  Finally, we'll discuss some of the challenges that can arise and brainstorm for culturally-sensitive responses.

This session is suitable for staff at any level and we hope that attendees will leave with concrete ideas and resources (i.e. book recommendations, websites, etc.) for the coming school year.
