Multilingualism in Humanities
In Humanities, we value and honor multilingualism and multiculturalism. We strive to approach all of our work, decisions, and created resources with a multilingual lens. Our goal is to prepare all Multilingual Learners/ Emergent Bilinguals (MLLs/EBs) for success beginning in prekindergarten to lay the foundation for college and career readiness and attainment of the bi-literacy seal. Our aim is to cultivate the attribute of being an influential and informed global steward as outlined in graduate portrait (p.22) students are prepared to live and work in a global environment, through strong multilingual and multicultural learning opportunities and experiences that begin in early education/prekindergarten. They understand world history from multiple perspectives. They are fluent in more than one language, and they value cultural and linguistic diversity.
