On May 6, the Office of English Language Acquisition (OELA) hosted a multiliteracy symposium. The theme of the symposium was “Celebrating the Diverse Linguistic and Cultural Assets of All Our Students” and it focused on why developing language and literacy skills in English and other languages is critical in today’s learning environment. The symposium hosted national leaders in research, practice, and policy and featured speakers from federal agencies, Congress, educators, parents, and students.
