Elementary ESOL teachers, Ellen Greer and Heather Moulder, will lead teachers through a presentation of how they can create an environment that encourages ELs to speak up and participate without fear, all while embracing their language learning journey. By incorporating information from The 6 Principles for Exemplary Teaching of English Learners, as well as giving valuable resources that can be incorporated daily- teachers can expect to leave with strategies that promote language growth and engaged learners across all domains and in all content areas. Join us to explore strategies for facilitating instructional conversations that include technology, games, and even cooking! Let’s get talking!
