Equality and diversity that include culture, language, race, national origin, social class, region, religion, gender, and exceptionality are important considerations in working with English learners. The school system must meet these potentially intersecting characteristics and needs of English learners which create the conditions of equity or inequity in the classroom. English learners must equitably experience a sense of belonging, competence, identity development, and meaningfulness in the classroom. Indicators and facilitators of student engagement will be presented.
