    Webinar: 5 Ways to Know if You Are Linguistically Responsive
    by Dr. Sharroky Hollie
    Access Dr. Sharroky Hollie's webinar on validating home language by simply entering your name and email address. This would be a great webinar to present to staff, especially with regard to why AEMP schools screen for home language features and teach Mainstream English Language Development: 5 Ways to Know if You Are Linguistically Responsive
    from "Strategies for Culturally and Linguistically Responsive Teaching and Learning" by Sharroky Hollie
    Responsive Vocabulary - 1) validate and affirm by "honor[ing] the words that students bring from home"; 2) use research-based strategies; 3) use the personal thesaurus and personal dictionary (127).
    Responsive Management - "The objective of CLR as it applies to classroom management is to increase student engagement and decrease management issues with responsive strategies and activities" (23).
    Responsive Literacy - "...supplementing your instruction with culturally responsive texts..." (173). "A culturally authentic text is a piece of fiction or nonfiction that illuminates the authentic, cultural experiences of a particular cultural group...The language, situations, and illustrations have to depict culture in an authentic manner..." (176).
    Responsive Language - "Students are allowed to make choices around cultural and linguistic behaviors dependent on the situation without giving up or sacrificing what they consider to be their base culture or language" (245).
    Responsive Environment - "...moving your environment toward a more culturally responsive setting" (246). Focus on "physical attraction, arrangement, and atmosphere" (289).
