CAL Summer Institute: Hot Topics in ELL Education
June 27 – 29, 2012
9:00 am – 4:00 pm ET
Savoy Suites Hotel, Washington, D.C.
This three-day Institute is designed to increase understanding and provide practical resources about important topics for educators working with English language learners in their classrooms and schools.
The institute focuses on three key topics from CAL’s new Hot Topics in ELL Education professional development series:
Hot Topic #1: Listening and Speaking: Oral Language and Vocabulary Development for English Language Learners, K-8
Hot Topic #2: Academic Language in the Content Areas
Hot Topic #3: Math and Science: Skills and Strategies to Adapt Instruction
The institute focuses on one topic each day and is designed for classroom teachers in elementary and middle schools (Grades K-8). It is also appropriate for ESL and bilingual teachers. Collaborative teaching teams are especially encouraged to attend. Other educators (including ESL and other school specialists and district and state administrators) will also find value in this professional development opportunity.
