*How to Serve Your Smaller EL/ML Population: Build Your EL Toolbox (K-12)

Join Amy Sturgeon for an engaging day where you’ll get many tools to fill your EL Toolbox. You’ll receive strategies and resources to best serve ELs whether they’re newcomers or LTELs and in elementary or high school. We will discuss tools for adapting materials and lessons, and supporting language growth in all four domains (Reading, Writing, Speaking, and Listening), and we'll address topics such as grading, translation, academic vocabulary, preparing for WIDA, and more!
