I received more questions and comments for today’s chat with Margo Gottlieb about assessing ELLs than I could use during the hourlong event. (Find a transcript of the chat here.) Gottlieb told me that if anyone feels his or her voice wasn’t heard or topic wasn’t addressed, she’s willing to respond to questions by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
One topic that was really hot on the chat was how to tell whether an English-language learner has a learning disability. If you’d like to weigh in on this or add to the chat discussion in some way, please use the comment button on this blog.
