Dr. DeCapua and Dr. Marshall have published articles and books on MALP® to help educators address the needs of students with limited or interrupted formal education (SLIFE) as well as other struggling culturally and linguistically diverse learners.These articles and books provide both theory and practice, and contain many examples of culturally responsive lessons and projects for all types of programs and students. This includes those with limited formal education as well as other struggling culturally and linguistically diverse learners for whom success in school settings has been elusive.
In addition to the published materials, there are other resources for downloading or viewing. As more resources become available, they will appear here.
This document explains MALP and the need for it in addressing the cultural issues faced by SLIFE and other culturally and linguistically diverse struggling learners in school settings. It also includes the Checklist.
