Identification and Academic Support for Long Term English Learners will be presented by WestEd. The virtual training will be held after school hours, to minimize classroom disruption. The training will consist of three, 2-hour sessions with assignments in-between each session. During this training, participants will investigate characteristics of Long Term ELs and will examine strategies and evidence-based practices to support academic growth. Participants will be introduced to a lesson tuning protocol designed to address the specific language and learning needs of Long Term ELs.
This training is recommended for secondary school teams of up to three individuals to include an EL teacher, a content teacher, and an administrator.
This virtual training will consist of 6 total hours (3 x 2-hour sessions over 3 weeks). The dates of these virtual sessions will be November 12, 17, 19. Training on each day will begin at 3:30 p.m. and adjourn at 5:30 p.m. The expectation is that participants are present at each of the 2-hour sessions for a total of 6 hours.
