Teachers entering the workforce often struggle regarding how to use a language-focused, quality curriculum that maintains academic rigor and high expectations for English language learners. Participants in this program will learn how to efficiently and effectively instruct English language learners using research-based methodologies regarding language structures, functions, forms, patterns and conventions of oral and written language in alignment with Pennsylvania’s English Language Proficiency Standards (ELPS) and the Common Core while applying instructional practices that provide students with comprehensible input. Educators exiting this program will also be well-equipped to use data to inform their instruction through the competent implementation of Pennsylvania’s mandated English language proficiency assessments (ACCESS for ELLs and W-APT) as well as formative assessments.
