My learning IS connected! Not only is my passion for developing a valued Mother Tongue collection in the Elementary library making gains, so is my awareness of others with similar passions. The image above was included in the SPELTAC course and I couldn’t feel it is more reflective of my journey than right now.
Using common tags to search our community blogs I was able to identify other SPELTAC teachers who are blogging about Mother Tongue. In fact, Claire is blogging about fostering Mother Tongue language development through home reading and further development of the library’s Mother Tongue collection. Similarly, Lisa is encouraging home reading in Mother Tongue languages to foster language acquisition in our ELL.
My hope is that our blogs will continue to highlight and connect those of us with a shared purpose. Ultimately, connected our community to build a Mother Tongue collection that values the languages of all ISPP students. Although I am curious to follow another of inquiries noted by SPELTAC teachers I am most passionate to follow an inquiry into the value of Mother Tongue collections in international schools such as ISPP.
