Just in time for the 52nd NYS TESOL conference our book: Supporting Student Success Through Community Asset Mapping: A NYS TESOL E-Book Kindle Edition with Ching-Ching Lin (Editor), Nicole Bell (Editor), Jasmin (Bey) Cowin (Editor) Format: Kindle Edition
This collection of participatory action research from educators of multilingual learners across the world is dedicated to the goal of supporting student success through community assets mapping. It is a must-read for any educator looking for concrete ways to tear down deficit narratives about multilingual learners and replace them with a lens of celebrating and amplifying students’ unique perspectives, assets, and strengths. Join a diverse and dynamic group of educators and their multilingual learners as they share their beliefs, knowledge and action plans in reimagining school as a site of foster-ship and empowerment through integrating academics, enrichment, critical awareness, and social-emotional learning to design programs that are holistic, equitable, and inclusive.
Best of all, I published a chapter with my former Touro University TESOL candidate John Zurschmiede: ACROSS BOUNDARIES: COMMUNITY ASSET MAPPING AND LINGUISTICALLY DIVERSE LEARNERS
