Supporting Non-Native Students’ SEL Development
All students bring with them their own experiences that become part of the overall classroom culture. Non-native students often have additional challenges while exploring social-emotional curriculum. Through the analysis of language, culture, and personal experiences of your student population, cultivate a toolbox of instructional practices designed specifically to support the obstacles of non-native students.
