Refugees, Asylees, Unaccompanied Minors: Teaching Students with Little to No Formal Schooling - 012384
Participants will gain a basic understanding of the refugee/asylee process, including what happens to unaccompanied minors. Tips and strategies for teaching students who have had little to no schooling due to their situation as a refugee, asylee, or unaccompanied minor will be shared. Information gained will aid teachers and support staff to effectively meet the social and emotional needs of the newcomer. In addition, participants will reflect on how the unique needs and cultural differences of the students affect the classroom. Participants will receive Boosting Achievement Reaching Students with Interrupted or Minimal Education by Carol Silva.
