dc.description.abstractThe number of immigrant students continues to grow from all corners of the world. With the student population growing even more diverse, teachers need a clearer understanding of culture shock and its different stages. Not only do students face linguistic challenges when entering the American classroom, but they are also confronted with socio-cultural differences. Informed educators can prevent or reduce anxiety from the stress of culture shock and allow for an environment where effective instruction and learning can take place. More can be done to empower educators to deal with the culture shock that is prevalent and growing in today’s classroom. The PD is designed for all teachers working with ELLs to better understand culture shock with its the stages, symptoms, and effects. With this knowledge, educators can be better prepared for assisting and supporting the ELLs who experience culture shock. Empowering teachers and ELLs with proper training about culture shock and its impact in our classrooms is essential to language, socio-cultural contexts and assessments.
