Ask Fatima: Multilingual resources

This month Fatima answers questions about finding multilingual resources.

Does WIDA provide multilingual resources?

At WIDA, we believe that everyone brings valuable resources to the education community. Children and youth who are linguistically and culturally diverse bring a unique set of assets that have the potential to enrich the experiences of all learners and educators. WIDA provides resources in languages other than English so that educators, families and communities can work together towards student success while acknowledging that not all families use English at home. The WIDA Resource Library can be filtered by more than 20 languages to help you locate items for a particular audience. Example topics include

  • Guiding Principles of Language Development
  • What is Language Testing?
  • Family Connections through Home Languages
  • Guiding Principles of Language Development
  • Learning Language Every Day: Activities for Families
