Dean’s Sabbatical Series Lecture: Keri-Anne Croce

Navigating Assessment with Linguistically Diverse Learners
Keri-Anne Croce

May 1, 2017, 11 a.m. – 12 p.m.
Loch Raven Room, University Union

In this sabbatical presentation, Dr. Croce will discuss how to assess and instruct linguistically diverse students while also honoring their cultural and linguistic backgrounds. Special attention is given to students’ literacy development in the math and sciences. This book talk revolves around the idea that linguistically diverse learners may engage in critical thinking in ways that we may not anticipate. It is suggested that students who are learning in an additional language do not need to “catch up.” Assessment should instead measure the new ways that students are interacting with the world. This book helps discover the many ways to help students develop as critically thinking readers, writers, and speakers. The information contained in this book will hopefully advance a dialogue between teachers and linguistically diverse students as they read and write multiple genres together.
