Course Description

CEU Course Description:

Newcomer students, or students who have newly arrived in the United States and may be enrolling in an American school for the first time, face considerable challenges as they work to integrate into our culture and invest in their schooling at the same time. Unfortunately, the support that we tend to offer them can be inconsistent. As educators, we need to make sure that we are there for our students as they learn English, work to invest in their success, and learn more about the culture in the United States. There are myriad practical ways that we can help increase newcomer student success, from aiding students with translation services and enhanced schooling accommodations to simply investing in updated technology for our classrooms. In this course, we’ll discuss why it is vital that we help newcomer students succeed and go over several methodologies for making that happen in our schools. 

CEU Course Objectives:

  1. Discuss who newcomers are and the contributions newcomers have historically made (and are making) to virtually every aspect of American life
  2. Itemize the specific ways that teachers can help support newcomers who are also English learners
  3. Distinguish between the different types of difficulties newcomers may be going through when they enter the United States
  4. Brainstorm ways to support newcomer families (e.g., parents) in addition to newcomer students
  5. Go over ways to create a positive, welcoming, and productive atmosphere for newcomer students at different ages
