Multilingual Education Survey Opens

Educators who want to share their thoughts on language and working with multilingual students are encouraged to do so through a new survey being conducted by the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s International Coalition for Multilingual Education and Equity, in conjunction with the University of Nebraska at Omaha. The federally funded coalition supports teachers in their work with multilingual students and families, including racial justice education.

The ICMEE is asking classroom teachers across Nebraska to consider taking the survey to assist in understanding more about teachers’ perspectives of language and work with multilingual students. Teachers who finish the survey will be entered into a raffle for one of 20 $100 Amazon gift cards. The survey may be accessed at: https://bit.ly/3tKpzIF

ICMEE also will offer free professional learning opportunities for all interested educators this summer. From May 1-July 31, educators may take advantage of a broad menu of online asynchronous development options. Modules range from Assessment During COVID and

Foundations of Race in Education to Translanguaging and Transformative Social Studies. Several book clubs also will be available, with many centering on themes to combat racism.
