Webinar: Meeting the Needs of ELLs in Rural Places

By Mary Ann Zehr — January 14, 2009 1 min read

The Rural School and Community Trust is hosting a Webinar that will focus on best practices for serving English-language learners in rural places. It’s scheduled for Jan. 28 at 2 p.m Eastern Standard Time, and you can register for it here.

The presentation and discussion will be led by Francisco Guajardo, a board member and vice chairman for the Rural Trust, and Jennifer Joy Esquierdo. Both are assistant professors in education at the University of Texas—Pan American.The webinar is free for members, but costs $45 for anyone else.

I draw your attention to this Webinar because I haven’t seen much information available targeting services to ELLs in rural areas. The last report I saw published about this subject was released in July. See my post, “When the First ELLs Show Up in Your District...”
