Announcement: Call for Presenters at the Bilingual Multicultural Education Equity Conference

BMEEC is calling for workshop presenters and participants. The Bilingual Multicultural Education Equity Conference is set for April 20-22, 2011, in Anchorage. Current information and sign up forms can be found at the link

The theme this year is Pathways to Equity: Culture, Competence & Connection. The featured keynote speaker, Misty Adoniou, is a senior lecturer in Language, Literacy and Teaching English as a Second Language at the University of Canberra, Australia. An advocate of teachers sharing expertise across borders and disciplines, her keynote topic will address scaffolding literacy, also called accelerated literacy. It is an adaptable pedagogy, which can be used across all grades and content areas, and has been used very successfully with aboriginal children in rural Australia, with urban mainstream classes, with gifted and talented and special needs students.
