The Mutually Adaptive Learning Paradigm®, or MALP®, is a culturally responsive instructional approach to help educators address the needs of students with limited or interrupted formal education (SLIFE) and other struggling culturally and linguistically diverse learners. This culturally responsive approach is intended to transition these learners from their preferred and customary ways of learning to Western-style formal education by integrating key elements of formal education while acknowledging and balancing their needs, preferences, and priorities. With MALP®, instructors have a concrete, practical set of guidelines to follow in designing and delivering culturally responsive instruction to SLIFE and other struggling learners.
Here is a handout that explains MALP® and provides a checklist for implementation: What is MALP?
