Play • 36 min

After distance learning in 2020, schools have an opportunity to engage multilingual learners and their families in a whole new way - or maybe even for the first time. In this episode, Peter DeWitt talks with Debbie Zacarian, Margarita Calderon, and Margo Gottlieb, the authors of Beyond Crises, about how school leaders can reach this population of students and families. The authors share practical starting points and real stories from schools doing amazing work. 

You'll hear: 

  • why starting with a strengths-based approach, rather than a deficit lens, is so crucial; 
  • how district leaders can make supporting multilingual learners a priority; 
  • how to give multilingual students agency.
