Reaching a Culturally Diverse Immigrant Population of Adult English Language Learners
Johnson, Joan; Owen, Linda
Journal of Adult Education, v42 n1 p23-29 2013
Culturally Responsive Teaching (CRT) is a framework to help adult English as a second language (ESL) educators renovate their practices into effective, culturally responsive programs, readily accessible to adult learners. Four CRT strategies that can be used include (a) validation through caring, (b) valuing cultural experiences, (c) creating a safe learning environment, and (d) integrating the learner's native language skills. These instructional strategies can be used to incorporate adult students' cultures and cultural identities in a second language learning environment.
