You Belong Here: How Teachers Create Welcoming Schools and Classrooms for Immigrant Students

Date: February 10, 2018

Instructors: Jesús Tirado, Teacher Consultant

Schedule: The workshops will take place from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m.

Location: UGA Gwinnett Campus, 2530 Sever Road, Lawrenceville, GA 30043

Cost: $45

Description: In the current political climate, teachers are finding ourselves constantly pushing against discriminatory laws, policies, and rhetoric targeting our immigrant students. How do we resist these harmful efforts to undermine public schools as democratic institutions where all students have the right to an education? And how do we create welcoming schools and classrooms that embody compassion, belonging, and inclusiveness?

In this workshop, participants will have the opportunity to learn from students of immigrant families about what has been helpful and would be helpful to them in their experiences at school. Students will also share their work with teachers that employ critical literacy practices to raise awareness and open up dialogue about how and why their being here matters.
