Cultural Proficiency Importance in Creating Communities of Inclusion in Dual Language Programs

10:30 - 11:45am PDT

Please consult the event program for location.

Presented at: CABE 2017

Often in dual language programs, the third pillar of education, cross-cultural competence, is forgotten or not targeted for fear of engaging in honest conversations about privilege and bias. Via strategies that are interactive, reflective, and action-driven, the purpose of this presentation is to strengthen participants' ability to integrate the Guiding Principles for Dual Language with the Cultural Proficiency Principles and Continuum, as a means to increase dual language educator advocacy that will result in establishing Communities of Inclusion.
