Many school districts are focusing on creating more consistency in how they teach literacy to English-language learners across schools. Their efforts include:
• Reviewing research on best practices for ELLs,
• Beefing up professional development on strategies to reach ELLs, and
• Creating districtwide curriculum that addresses the needs of such students.
Such efforts are particularly important as school districts consider how to implement the common core state standards for English-language learners. The Council of the Great City Schools has been a leading organization in advising and supporting school districts to form coherent and workable plans to serve this fast-growing population of students.
Our webinar guests will discuss both the research on the most effective approaches to improving literacy for ELLs and how some school districts have tried to carry out those approaches. ____________________
