Virtual Professional Learning Experience
English language learners (ELLs) make schools stronger because they incite educators to think strategically and thoughtfully about how to create inclusive learning environment in their schools. Through our work together, you will have a more comprehensive understanding of how to authentically connect with your ELLs, how to better understand who they are and the strengths they bring to bear, and how to strategically differentiate your instruction to meet the needs of ALL of your students.
What makes this Virtual Professional Learning Experience unique is that it is designed as a wrap-around program that delivers personalized support before and after you view the asynchronous learning videos, which leads to greater buy-in because you are motivated to learn and grow from the experience.
