New resource to support cross-cultural dialogue

 In celebration of National Welcoming Week, September 12-20, Welcoming America and World Education, Inc. have put together 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.
