This workshop is designed for K-12 content teachers who are responsible for educating English learners in their content classrooms. Federal and state policies make clear that ELs must have equitable access to the same standards-based rigorous content instruction as all students, and that content teachers maintain responsibility for ensuring their content instruction is accessible to ELs. Participants will review the state and federal requirements that outline content teachers' responsibilities for differentiating instruction and assessment before exploring instruction and assessment design processes for differentiation for ELs. Practices, strategies, and design considerations will be analyzed and discussed. Finally, participants will analyze assessment tools and EL classroom assessment data to determine appropriate supports and scaffolds.

Instructor(s): Andrea G. Kolb, Ph.D., Statewide Multilingual Education and Instructional Design Project Manager, Center for Schools and Communities
