2018-02-12 17:00 2018-02-12 20:00 15 Penn GSE Event: M.S.Ed. TESOL Teaching Refugees & Immigrants Workshop Led by a representative from HIAS Pennsylvania, TESOL students will discuss the process of refugee resettlement in the US and what life looks like for newly arrived refugees in Philadelphia, as well as best practices for teaching English Language Learners from these populations. Sarah Peyton Kaufman DD/MM/YYYY

In the midst of an increasingly intense and complex dialogue on immigration and refugees, it is more important than ever to understand the distinctions between these populations and why and how they might seek refuge in the United States.  It is also important that as language teachers, we consider ways to effectively support and teach students who are refugees and immigrants. 

This workshop for first-year TESOL students will focus on the immigration and resettlement process, as well as practical teaching considerations.

RSVP required.
