ITLE Year 2 One Campus, Many Views Grants

Schooling in Nebraska's Demographically Transitioning Communities ($15,000)

Teaching, Learning and Teacher Education

Through a partnership with undergraduates, in-service teachers and the department, this initiative is poised to start a discussion on immigration and English as second language populations.

Funds will create and support mentor relationships between teachers who work in linguistically challenging settings and undergraduate teacher candidates.

The first phase will involve recruiting mentoring teachers from two new graduate-level courses in summer 2006. Each course will meet simultaneously in three sites: Lincoln, Lexington and Columbus/Norfolk, chosen for their high numbers of immigrant and second-language students. This project will help our undergraduate students better understand linguistic and cultural diversity and Nebraska's emerging population of immigrant families and students.
