Supporting Student Success Through Community Asset Mapping: A NYS TESOL E-Book

The NYS TESOL E-book is a must-read for educators looking for concrete ways to tear down deficit perspectives about multilingual learners, instead, replacing them with a lens of celebrating and amplifying students’ unique perspectives, assets, and strengths.

Here are the testimonies from the experts:


There is so much written about how educators are supposed to "fix" the so-called "deficits'' of English Language Learners. Ching-Ching, Nikki and Jasmin have, instead, created a book sharing many excellent and practical ideas for how we can highlight and build upon the multiple assets all our learners bring to the classroom with them.

– Larry Ferlazzo, Education Week Teacher Advice Columnist


I am blown away by the diverse authors/educators who vividly show us how to center students as they learn from and with them in ways that are multilingual, multimodal and grounded in the local and global realities.

– Tatyana Kleyn, The City College New York & CUNY - Initiative on Immigration and Education


NYS TESOL's new ebook, Supporting Student Success Through Community Assets Mapping, offers educators cutting-edge examples of how to bring a strengths-based vision of learning for linguistically diverse learners into reality. From podcasting with students, to humanizing a transborder classroom, to intergenerational learning, this book demonstrates educators'' creativity and commitment to weave multimodal and community-based practices into the English learning space and will inspire many to forge their own paths.
