Title

  • Learning to Teach All Over Again: Teachers' Reflections on Using Primary Source Analysis to Engage English Learners in Critical Democratic Discussions

Summary

  • Teachers of English Learners are challenged with designing instruction that simultaneously facilitates English language development and grade-level academic content mastery. However, many teachers struggle to move from policies to practices and mindsets to materials. Furthermore, many educators unintentionally enact a pedagogy of pity, lowering expectations to protect ELs from experiencing failure or struggle, a phenomenon that Pedro Noguera refers to as the "pobrecito syndrome" (2008). This session discusses outcomes regarding changes in teachers' attitudes about ELs' abilities to succeed as well as their experience with facilitating rich democratic discussions with ELs using primary source analysis. Andrea Kolb, Center for Schools and Communities, facilitates the session.
