Opening General Session - Educating Multilingual Learners: Whole-School and Classroom-Based Instructional Strategies - Keynote Speaker: Jim Cummins
The causes of underachievement among multilingual and minoritized students go beyond simply a mismatch between the language of the home and the language of the school. It is obviously essential that schools support students in learning the language of instruction and catching up academically. However, it is equally important that schools respond to (a) socioeconomic factors that potentially limit academic success, and (b) the devaluation of students’ identities that results from societal stereotypes and racism in the wider society.
International research has highlighted seven sets of overlapping instructional strategies that respond directly to the causes of educational disadvantage among linguistically diverse, socially disadvantaged, and marginalized students. These strategies together, instituted across the entire school, provide high challenge and contextualized support for all learners:
• Scaffold comprehension and production of language
• Reinforce academic language across the curriculum
• Engage students’ multilingual repertoires
• Maximize literacy engagement.
• Connect with students’ lives and the knowledge, culture and language of their communities
• Decolonize instruction by means of transformative (culturally sustaining) pedagogies
• Affirm students’ identities by enabling them to use their language and literacy skills to carry out powerful intellectual and creative academic work

The presentation will discuss these instructional strategies and ways that schools can develop school-based language policies that support all students in academic learning.

Caring for Ourselves and Our Students in Difficult Times
In these challenging times, it’s important to attend to the socio-emotional needs of our students and ourselves. In this session, we provide strategies for dual language teachers to create a strong foundation by attending to their own self-care as well as the needs of their teaching partner. We then propose an approach to culturally sustaining classroom management to promote an affirming classroom environment for all learners. Implementing this approach jointly can strengthen relationships with students and reduce teachers’ professional stress.

California's State Seal of Civic Engagement: Recognizing the Civic Engagement of Our Students
The State Seal of Civic Engagement (SSCE) dates back to Assembly Bill 24 (2017), which instructed the CDE to develop a set of criteria to award students who have demonstrated excellence in civic education. The general purpose of the Legislation with the SSCE is to “establish a State Seal of Civic Engagement to encourage, and create pathways for, pupils in elementary and secondary schools to become civically engaged in democratic governmental institutions at the local, state, and national levels.” California’s seal is different from other state seals in its emphasis on accessibility. The goal is for students to be recognized for demonstrating their understanding of what it means to be civically engaged as well as for their participation in civic engagement projects.

Empowering Students: Building Capacity for Flexible Thinking
Building flexible thinking is important for all educational populations. For educators, building flexible thinking begins with their understanding of diversity and the importance of multimodal engagement. For students, flexible thinking may require removing obstacles, then building capacity in a variety of forms. This workshop for teachers, para-educators, support providers and students will prismatically examine ways to build flexible thinking, offer digital access to a variety of resources, and experience sample activities.

Los estudiantes que compartimos en la región calibaja
La creciente migración de personas a nivel mundial demanda diferentes formas de atención y de seguimiento, sobre todo, cuando se trata de movilidad de menores. Cada país determina sus políticas migratorias para enfrentar estos retos. La Secretaría de Educación del Estado se ha dado la tarea de identificar a los menores extranjeros que se encuentran inscritos en el nivel básico (de educación preescolar hasta educación secundaria) encontrando a más de 45 mil menores de diferentes países, siendo Estados Unidos el de mayor procedencia.
En cuanto a la formación inicial de docentes y desarrollo profesional de docentes en servicio se han realizando encuentros, diplomados y la capacitación binacional de docentes en colaboración con instituciones educativas y de la sociedad civil de Estados Unidos como el Departamento de Educación de CA y la Asociación de California para la Educación Bilingüe (CABE).

Bilingual Educators, Professional Learning, and Racial Justice
Let’s take advantage of this opportunity to level the playing field for bilingual learners. Now more than ever, bilingual teachers need to know how to leverage the linguistic and cultural resources that diverse learners bring with them to school in order to accelerate student learning. This live webinar introduces a collaborative, teacher-directed professional learning system that groups of educators can use to meet this important moment.

We start by visualizing professional learning from a multilingual perspective with a focus on racial justice. The majority of the session presents Caslon Learning (CL), an innovative web-based professional learning system that groups of educators can use virtually, face-to-face, and in hybrid settings to engage with a specific Caslon publication and apply what they learn to practice. This session features "The Translanguaging Classroom: Leveraging Student Bilingualism for Learning" by Ofelia García, Susana Ibarra Johnson, and Kate Seltzer to illustrate key features of the CL system.

CABE AWARD SPOTLIGHT: Courage to Act Board Award
Join CABE Board members in recognizing and honoring the recipients of the CABE Board "Courage to Act" Award. In 1989, a lone, armed gunman walked onto the Cleveland School campus and playground in Stockton USD during recess and shot and killed five students, all Southeast Asian refugees, and wounded 29 others. Several of the teachers formed the group "Cleveland School Remembers" to advocate for safe schools and reasonable gun laws and to advocate for English Learners, immigrant students and refugees.

Learn to Walk in the Shoes of your Multilingual Learners
Over the past 10 years more than 90,000 multilingual shadowing projects have been conducted, with dramatic results, in California and across the country. In fact, in 2018, Education Trust-West acknowledged Shadowing as a "promising practice for honoring and leveraging English learner students' backgrounds, cultures, and home languages, as assets for math learning". This session will highlight how Shadowing can be used systemically as a promising practice in virtual or face-to-face classrooms regardless of the subject matter. Whether you’ve already been trained in the research-validated MLL shadowing process, or you’re just discovering its power now, we invite you to join us for this information packed session with lessons learned during the past ten years of implementation. Participants of the session may register to win a free copy of Ivannia Soto’s just-published second edition of Shadowing Multilingual Learners or a paid seat for CABE’s upcoming Shadowing professional development, which will be a 4-session series with Ivannia Soto.

Standing Together and Learning Together.
Standing together and learning together means understanding what our neighbors are doing: those who work in first language acquisition, second language acquisition, and literacy. It means taking advantage of the wisdom and experiences of teachers and students, and paying attention to traditional and non-traditional research. Reports from all these areas come to similar conclusions! This knowledge, however, is not shared because of the cost of books and journals, and tortured academic writing styles. We can solve these problems.

Despite the well-established importance of oral language skills in later literacy achievement, assessment and progress monitoring of these skills has remained elusive. This workshop will provide early primary teachers with the hands-on experience of creating curriculum-based rubrics for progress monitoring the oral language development of emergent bilinguals in English and/or Spanish. By combining WIDA (World-class Instructional Design and Assessment), the ELPAC (English Language Proficiency Assessments for California) and CA CCSS ELA/ELD standards, teachers will leave with a relevant assessment tool to inform instructional decisions.

Building English Language Competence and Confidence for Academic Success
Middle and high school years pose unique challenges for Dual Language Students. Many classes are didactic, requiring comprehension of oral instruction and note taking. The adolescent student’s mastery of academic content as well as confidence in pursuing college and/or career can suffer if English language skills are under developed. Highly effective adjunctive technological methods should instruct and reinforce complex grammar and higher level academic vocabulary while simultaneously enhancing English Language perceptual, working memory and attention skills.

Developing Metalinguistic Awareness with Emergent Bilingual Students
Emergent bilingual students use all of their cognitive and linguistic resources to enhance language acquisition and learn content. Teachers can work to give students additional linguistic resources by raising awareness of metalinguistics. In particular, teachers can show students how the two languages of their dual language program are the same and different, facilitating bi-directional transfer that can improve literacy development in both languages. This session will provide research on the value of providing this kind of instruction and describe the language systems for comparison: the graphophonic, semantic, syntactic and pragmatic. Using bilingual children’s literature, the presenter will demonstrate the use of each of these systems in Spanish and English. The audience will then practice using this knowledge with a bilingual poem, followed by practical suggestions for activities to do with students.

Biliteracy, essential to dual language education, plays a role in advanced language acquisition, access to academic content, and developing awareness of cross-linguistic connections. We will focus on two case studies of biliteracy in DL programs. First, we examine how DL programs frame biliteracy as essential to program development through an examination of multiple program master plans. Second, we consider the range of biliteracy in a DL fifth-grade class, and its long-term impact on students.

Developing (Bi)Literacy for Emerging Bilingual Learners: Research Based Approaches
There is a national movement that purports to improve the teaching of beginning literacy through the utilization of methods commonly referred to as the Science of Reading. Proponents of these methods claim that the Science of Reading is equally beneficial for emerging bilingual learners as they are for monolingual English Learners. This presentation will first discuss how teaching initial literacy to emerging bilingual learners is different than teaching monolingual English Learners whether children are in bilingual/dual language or English only programs of instruction. Next, in the best of situations, teaching initial literacy to emerging bilingual learners involves developing biliteracy. The second part of this presentation will discuss considerations for developing initial literacy when the development of biliteracy is an option. Finally, the presentation will discuss how the Science of Teaching methods may be incorporated into effective initial reading instruction for emerging bilingual learners in bilingual/dual language and English only approaches.

Culturally Competent educators who embrace linguistic diversity are vital for removing barriers to accessing rigorous core curricula for Standard English Learners (SELs). An understanding of culturally and linguistically responsive pedagogy that builds on the language, learning styles,
cultural competencies, and experiences of SEL students, is prerequisite for ensuring equity and access to rigorous standards-based curricula.

A follow-up study conducted ten years later confirmed that the exposure to media is crucial element in the path to language acquisition. This path is pleasant, produces consistently positive results, turns students into independent, lifelong acquirers of Chinese and provides students opportunity to become citizens of the world.

Conversar para construir
Un elemento muy importante en las familias es la comunicación, y dependiendo de la edad de los hijos se debe hacer de forma diferente, si no se hace correctamente puede llegar a ser un obstáculo para la vida familiar. En los adolescentes es muy importante escucharlos y conocer cuáles son sus emociones, su lenguaje, lo que piensan y sobre todo cómo observan el mundo. A través de la platica, se darán algunas recomendaciones a los padres de familia de como abordar algunas conversaciones con sus hijos adolescentes para construir soluciones a sus necesidades, a sus miedos y que puedan construir una relación familiar fuerte.

Celebrating Multilingual Learner Identity Through Personal Narrative Instruction
Personal narrative assignments provide multilingual learners with unique opportunities to explore their heritage. The social isolation young second-language scholars have endured during virtual learning have left many in dire need of lessons that affirm their identity while advancing their academic communication skills. Well intentioned educators often underestimate the organizational and linguistic complexities of crafting an effective personal narrative for multilingual learners. Dr. Kinsella shares classroom-tested instructional routines and practical resources to implement a successful personal narrative writing unit that honors diversity and builds a more cohesive community of learners. Proven practices include well-designed discussion and writing prompts, small group discussion guides, writing models, accessible rubrics, and relevant vocabulary lessons.

Administrative Leadership Symposium--On-Ramping to Equity-Centered Reopening of Schools
The CABE 2021 Administrative Leadership Symposium will provide superintendents, school board members, district and site leaders with an inside look at equity-based and caring systems for the return to in-person learning. While this school year has brought on many challenges due to distance and hybrid learning, we will come together at the CABE 2021 Administrative Leadership symposium to share mindsets, processes and resources as we look forward to extended
learning opportunities and to ready ourselves for the new 2021-2022 school year. We will explore questions and perspectives such as:
• How am I addressing the social-emotional needs of my English Learner and multilingual students and
their families?
• How am I supporting my sta and myself during the current school year and as I prepare for the physical
re-opening of schools?
• What resources are available to integrate assets-based, social-emotional support for sta and students?
• How am I able to leverage compliance documents such as the LCP and LCAP to ensure that English Learners and students of culturally and linguistically diverse background are supported?

Dr. Victor Ríos, along with CABE and CALSA leaders, will present and facilitate a discussion that embraces the concept of “Care-Opening” as we plan for the return to in-person schooling. Highlights will include a keynote address by Dr. Ríos, student voice, leadership perspective from a panel of Superintendents, small group dialogue, and key take away resources to support the LCP/LCAP process through the lens of equity and the EL Roadmap. The CABE 2021 Administrative Leadership Symposium promises to inspire, motivate, and provide resources and practices to engage all of us in standing together for unity, multiliteracy and equity! The CABE 2021 is co-sponsored by CABE and The California Association of Latina/o Superintendents & Administrators (CALSA) -- www.calsa.org

Closing Session: Remembering and Honoring the 40th Anniversary of Castañeda v. Pickard and Its Impact Today
Join us for the Closing Session for CABE 2021 with Rachel Moran and CABE leaders! We will honor and remember the 40th Anniversary of  Castañeda v Pickard which was successful in 1981 in the US 5th Court of Appeals and provided the framework of three criteria of effective bilingual programs.  Its impact is even more important to day as we prepare to return to in-person learning.  We will bring the conference to a close with the inspiring music of 123Andres and Christina.  Together we will be motivated to move forward even stronger as we bring CABE 2021 to a close.
