There are a considerable number of ESL students (English as a Second Language) in classrooms today, causing a strong need for additional programs and services. Unfortunately, there are many critical issues that relate to culturally and linguistically diverse students. Four critical issues that are found in todayís classrooms when teaching diverse learners are instruction, assessment, the role of culture, and the teacherís attitudes. We will discuss these topics and more with our guest Pierre Rancy, Director of Second Language Programs for the Uniondale School District in New York.
