Chat Today on Adolescent Literacy: Want to Slip in a Question About ELLs?

By Mary Ann Zehr — May 26, 2009 1 min read

EdWeek will be hosting Michael L. Kamil, a prominent researcher on reading, for a live chat today focusing on adolescent literacy. I’ll be the moderator and it will take place from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m., Eastern time. Find more information here.

Kamil was a member of the National Literacy Panel for Language-Minority Children and Youth, so he has a lot of knowledge about literacy and English-language learners as well as adolescent literacy in general. I’m thinking that some of you who are working with ELLs with interrupted formal schooling, who have little or no literacy in their home languages, might want to toss him a question about ELLs.
