Presented by Nakia Douglas, Principal, Barack Obama Male Leadership Academy in Dallas, Texas
Despite increasing globalization and further interconnection of societies, many American students lack the tools to frame how world affairs—be they political, economic, scientific, etc.—affect their lives. Tomorrow’s leaders must have an understanding and respect for other cultures, be able to investigate the world beyond their backyard, and communicate and collaborate with diverse audiences. Language skills support all of these needs.
In our community’s next webinar, learn how one school in Dallas Texas, The Barack Obama Male Leadership Academy (BOMLA), is preparing its students for leadership in the global world by providing them language skills for futures success. Join BOMLA Principal Nakia Douglas to hear more on:
- How BOMLA expanded learning time to accommodate language learning
- The impact their language program has had on college acceptance
- How language skills have impacted student confidence and contributed to leadership development
