Asset-based Teaching: Changing Perceptions to Create a Sense of Belonging with Dr. Ilene Winokur
3:00 PM

Event Description
Changing our perception of English learners from deficit (glass half-empty) to asset (glass can be refilled) improves how we perceive our students and how they perceive themselves. This presentation focuses on the importance of an asset-based mindset to support a students’ sense of belonging that is essential to their learning.
