About the lecture: Schools around the world are becoming culturally diverse, and students are increasingly multilingual. This creates new challenges for teachers who need to work with language development and literacy across all subjects. In this session, I will talk about how to combine classroom-based inquiry with effective literacy practices to meet the needs of diverse groups of students. This approach is based on a successful intervention in New Zealand that has improved reading achievement for culturally diverse students for over 15+ years. I will use examples from the intervention to illustrate the method and provide some tools that teachers can use in their own classrooms
