February Trainings: Long Term ELLs and ESL Academy

Come learn with the Region 13 Bilingual/ESL Team this month! We have two instructional-focused sessions coming up with our Bilingual/ESL Specialists.

Long Term ELL Training with Anna Briggs: February 24, 2016 from 9-12, e-Campus #SP1632371

Long Term English Language Learners (LTELLs) represent a growing number of struggling language learners in Texas. These students show significant gaps in their schooling, and have unique literacy and linguistic needs that are different from recent arrival ELLs. LTELLs’ number of years in US schools can also pose a challenge with regard to the latest accountability measures. If your school district has seen an increase in your LTELL population, this workshop will provide participants with the background knowledge and tools for reaching the needs of these learners.

ESL Academy with Ivonne Santiago: February 24-26, 2016, e-Campus# SP1631811

This three-day workshop provides a foundation on language acquisition and explores best practices in ESL instruction while preparing participants for the TExES Exam #154: English as a Second Language Supplemental.
