May 14 Webinar on ‘Best Practices’ for ELLs in High School

By Mary Ann Zehr — April 10, 2009 1 min read

The National High School Center in Washington will host a Webinar on research-based methods for educating ELLs in high school. A school principal and two researchers will talk about “best practices” for educating ELLs and how these practices can be supported by policies at the district, state, and national levels.

The event will be held on Thursday, May 14, from 2 p.m. to 3:15 p.m. Eastern Time. Click here for more details.

While the question of how to improve high schools for ELLs is getting more attention in education circles (see this earlier post of mine), I don’t hear from many high school educators who feel their schools are doing a good job with these students. When I do hear of such examples, I try to visit the schools, as I did for this story and this one.

More often than not, I hear about how high schools are struggling to provide access to the core curricula for ELLs, as I reported earlier this year in “High School Credits for ELLs Still a Challenge.”

So I look forward to learning if the Webinar will provide any additional good news about high schools and ELLs in this country.
