From Global Nomads to Global Citizens: Meeting the Unique Educational Needs of International School Students, by Rose Tyvand, Science and Math Instructor at Almaty International School

Drawing upon a comprehensive body of current research, this workshop explores the unique educational needs of multicultural, transitory International School students.
Although much research identifies the emotional needs of these students, relatively few studies address more than one or two of their unique academic needs such as: semi-lingualism, gaps in learning, and undiagnosed learning disabilities.

This session combines the results of published investigations to paint a complete picture of International School students.  Who are they? What are their strengths and weaknesses? How can we best educate these future Global Citizens?

Through active involvement, participants will explore the use of systems which address our students' particular needs such as: Universal Design for Learning, Transition Resource Teams, Response to Intervention, and more.  This workshop is an imperative for any educator who wonders what the term “best practices” means at an International School.
