Here’s a reminder that ELL experts Diane August of the Center for Applied Linguistics and Gabriela Uro of the Council of the Great City Schools will be guests at a free webinar at edweek.org today about how to improve literacy for English-language learners. It’s scheduled for 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. Eastern time. I’ll be moderating, and the event is sponsored by Imagine Learning.
Some of the discussion will focus on how districts can consider the needs of English-language learners in implementing states’ common-core academic standards.
If you’re teaching or otherwise not available to tune in, you can pull up the webinar in the archives at our web site 24 hours after it’s over.
