Languages and cultures have a complex, homologous relationship. FWISD students represent a linguistically and culturally-rich, diverse population. Students and their families speak over 60 languages, representing over 100 countries, cultures, racial, and ethnic backgrounds. About half of our 87,000 students come from homes where a language other than English is spoken. Thirty-five percent of FWISD students are classified as English learners (ELs) and another 15% are monitored ELs who have exited the ESL program. In this interactive session, participants will learn research-based practices proven to advance students in their language acquistion, while fostering their native language and cultures.
