The new California World Languages Standards (2019) and Framework (2020) are our guiding documents to connect social emotional well-being with accelerated learning in world language and dual immersion classrooms. Join us at UC Santa Barbara for a healing journey, and learn to meditate as well. For five days, we will bring together world language and dual language immersion educators to learn, to engage in self-care and, most importantly, to celebrate our commitment to remaining resilient during challenging times. CWLP & CLTA resolve to center the strengths, values, languages, cultures and well-being of students, families, colleagues, and ourselves, in order to amplify the learning of all California students.
