Refugee Education Workshop Series: Working with Refugee Students

Join Dr. Xia Chao for the third of four interactive workshops in a series dedicated to helping educators understand the cultures, needs, and assets of the Pittsburgh area’s refugee communities.


Through a grant from the National Geographic Society, Dr. Chao has conducted research over the past several years that explores the experiences and narratives of local refugee communities including the Nepali, Karen, and Somali Bantu.

This workshop series seeks to incorporate the findings of Dr. Chao’s research in order to offer local educators insight into working with students from these communities and resources for supporting immigrant and refugee families in their interactions with the American educational system. This session will help educators learn classroom practices to create an engaging and inviting classroom.


To register, visit the Eventbrite page.

Light refreshments and Act 48 credits will be provided.
