Living in a multicultural society is crucial to understanding the importance of speaking more than one language.  The diversity of cultures in Miami Dade has increased dramatically in the last 5 years.  We have children who arrive in the centers speaking their home language, and others who managed to speak more than one.  Taking into consideration the needs and advantages, this training was develop to offer teachers a new perspective on how to interact with all their students providing the caring and support their students requires.

During this training we will discuss the neurological, cognitive and social benefits of being bilingual.  Also we will present different strategies to support English Language Learners and Bilingual students in the classroom.  After this training participants will have new ideas on how interact with ELL, bilingual children and their families. These tools will also open doors for children who are just English Language speakers.
