In the decade I’ve been writing about English-language learners, I’ve noticed a large increase in training of mainstream teachers, rather than just ELL specialists, on how to work with those students.

WestEd is adding to this training by providing a live webinar for mainstream teachers of math to teach ELLs in their classroom who have different levels of language proficiency.

The webinar, “Making Mathematics Accessible for English-Learners,” will be offered Wednesday, Dec. 2, from 1:30 p.m. to 3 p.m., Eastern Time. Presenters will be Cathy Carroll, a senior project director at WestEd, and John Carr, a senior research associate for the evaluation research team at the research organization.
