"Language is learned, not because we want to talk or read or write about language, but because we want to talk and read and write about the world." -- Courtney, Cazden, Professor Emerita, Harvard Graduate School of Education. This blog, curated by Oakland Unified School District's English Language Learner and Multilingual Achievement Office, seeks to spotlight Oakland teachers and the diverse strategies they've implemented to support English Language Learners to achieve at high levels and graduate college, career and community ready. We'll also be showcasing some of our beautiful students along the way to share their dreams and journeys thus far. Do you have a teacher you'd like us to spotlight? Nominate them here!
