Techniques and Tools to Design Lesson Interactions That Engage and Affirm Multilingual Learners  
A primary goal of US college and career readiness initiatives is to ensure K-12 scholars develop the verbal skills to communicate effectively in diverse academic and professional settings. Integrating routine classroom interactions that significantly improve students’ language and literacy skills is both a science and an art. Simply providing standards-aligned questions and opportunities to collaborate with peers will not yield impressive linguistic results.
