Leveraging Latin American Cultural & Linguistic Diversity for Academic Achievement: A Professional Development Guide for US Teachers

Earl, Amanda Kathleen

This professional development guide revisits the relevance of language and culture when teaching to students who were raised in a different part of the world, and provides a fresh look into adapting the theories familiar to K-12 teachers about the topic with lesson plans and resources from Latin America and the Caribbean. Each lesson plan indicates the K-12 level and the subject for the activity. The author, a teacher herself, facilitated a workshop along with two other colleagues and did fieldwork in Mexico before bringing the lessons learned into this guide.
