Project 2: Morphology
Passage:
In multicultural schools, it is important to prepare all students not just newcomers and not just
those who are learning English to participate in a culturally diverse society.
The most effective preparation takes place in classrooms where students of all
backgrounds feel valued as members of the school community, learn to respect one another and
explore linguistic and cultural differences in a positive way, and welcome newcomers, whether
they have arrived from another school in the same community or another country and whether
they speak English or are beginning learners of the language.
Use strategies such as the following to create an inclusive learning environment:

Welcomes and introductions


Class photographs
Questionnaires and language surveys
Roots and routes
Inclusive displays
Peer tutors and partners
Support for the efforts of language learners
A multilingual classroom environment
A multilingual and anti-racist curriculum
Multicultural literature circles
