Building Inclusive Environments that Support Access and Success for Emergent Multilingual Learners
The spring 2022 issue of GATESOL Journal provides language teachers, administrators, community developers, curriculum designers, and advocates of the emergent multilingual population in Georgia, the U.S., and around the world with insights on developing inclusive practices. Inclusion is “the act of creating environments in which any individual or group can feel welcomed, respected, supported, and valued to fully participate. An inclusive and welcoming climate embraces differences and offers respect in words and actions for all people'' (YW Boston Blog, 2019, para. 8). This issue will showcase how inclusive practices can be supported in language, culturally and linguistically responsive teaching practices, and peace-oriented education.
