Intro to Working with EL Students

This seminar is required for candidates in endorsement areas other than ELL.

This seminar will provide an overview of the fundamental knowledge and skills required for all teachers to recognize and support students who are learning English. A key focus will be understanding the challenges faced by students who are learning English and identifying instructional strategies to support English language development and content mastery. The seminar will describe many ways ELL professionals provide support and developmental encouragement for language learners, as well as strategies for teachers in other specializations to work with ELL colleagues to support and encourage students.
