PLC Question #2: How will we know that students are learning?

Research tells us that it takes at least 5 years for English Language Learners to catch up to grade-level expectations in academic language skills. Join us for a webinar with world-renowned ELL and Literacy expert, Dr. Jim Cummins, where he will share evidence-based strategies to support academic achievement for English Language Learners in your classroom.

Of all the SIOP components, Strategies is sometimes described as the most challenging because of its focus on the cognitive, metacognitive, and language learning strategies that learners apply flexibly when reading, writing, and speaking. During this webinar, Dr. MaryEllen Vogt will demystify the Strategies component, while sharing practical, use-tomorrow ideas and activities that will develop elementary and secondary English learners’ (and all students’) strategic thinking abilities.
