IN-SITES for TEACHING ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNERS


The challenge and opportunity facing urban educators in particular, and society in general, is interwoven with the destiny of increasing numbers of students struggling to learn English while mastering academic content. A seminal issue for our age, this challenge speaks to both individual and social transformation--integration without rejection on both interpersonal and intrapersonal levels. Known as the Duversity, this opportunity is to face and conquer our inner fears and obstacles to empowerment, through inner integration without rejection, and to follow the same path outwardly, transforming social institutions in order to integrate and empower biliterate Americans who have learned to read their worlds, as well as the word.


We are a nation of immigrants. Currently the largest and fastest growing segment of new Americans are those from Hispanic backgrounds. Our city schools, both locally and nationally, now average over 50% Hispanic/Latino. My high school, Panorama High School, is nearly 90% Hispanic/Latino. The ethnic make-up of the teaching profession is hardly one-tenth of that (5% Hispanic). Consider the implications of this, and use these links to prepare yourself to make an impact, especially via sites 1, 2 and 3!
