Sociocultural Aspects of Schooling for ELs
An issue that I would like to address at my school site is creating an atmosphere of welcome for new comers and non-English speakers. My school site is very receptive of new comers, however dealing with non-English speakers can be daunting with the language barrier. I think tutoring should be emphasized to help build the bridge between EL's and native English speakers. Also, festivals held during lunch that highlight different cultures should be held at least once a month and should avoid the stereotypes that some may grasp on to.
