In celebration of National Welcoming Week, September 16-25, Welcoming America and World Education, Inc. created a free Instructors’ Toolkit for Building Bridges Across Communities. The toolkit is designed for adult educators who are interested in building more welcoming classrooms and communities by finding commonalities and celebrating values that unite us. The toolkit consists of mid-level, adaptable ESOL and ABE classroom activities that aim to foster dialogue across cultures and build lasting connections, especially among immigrants and US-born residents. It draws on resources developed by Welcoming America and The Change Agent magazine from World Education.
Here's an article on what Fresno Adult School organized last year. Is anyone planning activities inside or outside of the classroom this September?
