Explore strategies teachers can implement in the classroom to ensure English learner students are placed at the center of their own learning and the responsibilities district leaders plays in getting the necessary time and resources, even if it involves creative funding models.
You’ll gain critical insights into the following questions:
- How can teachers better support their English learner students when it comes to growing their engagement in the classroom and helping them cultivate their home languages?
- What role can district policies play in supporting these efforts?
- How does this all work with immigrant English learners who have unique needs?
This session will focus on the broader English learner population but will also offer an opportunity to discuss how to prioritize the needs of the growing number of immigrant English learners.
