Understanding and Supporting Afghan Families: Relationships matter. In education, we know building relationships is critical to the success of students. But what if you are new to working with a specific culture and do not have any experience working with a certain population? It can take years and many mistakes, to begin to understand and make connections with a culture different than your own. This PD gives you 4 Keys to a deeper understanding of the Afghan culture and their recent experiences.
Presented by Pamela Broussard, Founder of Leading ELL who has lived and taught both in the US and in Afghanistan, and has over 30 years of working with new arrivals and immigrants.
