At the heart of Ambitious Teaching is the willingness and ability of teachers to engage learners in setting their own learning goals and participating in cognitively challenging learning tasks to inquire, generate ideas in order to make sense and problem solve complicated real-world topics. Ambitious teaching, a sa pedagogical approach advocated for and practiced in various disciplines, had only begun to explore how it can be implemented specifically centering on multilingual learners. While rigorous standards and a cohesive curriculum can be tools to aid in this endeavor, this promising pedagogical approach requires educators serving multilingual learners to make some fundamental mindshifts about teaching and learning and adhere to a set of principles regarding equity-centered teaching for multilingual learners. In this presentation, Iwill discuss the mindshifts required for Ambitious, Equity-centered Teaching for multilingual learners and share examples of how teachers committed to this approach make a difference everyday in their classrooms.
