Webinar: Success with Multicultural Newcomers and English Learners, June 27
Educators at schools throughout the country are asking, “How do I properly address the needs of our Newcomers?” Although there are programs and materials specifically targeting English learners in general, they do not seem to be working well for Newcomers on their own.
The focus of this webinar on June 27, 2019 at 3 PM is to describe the range of Newcomers (from never schooled to highly schooled in their countries) and how instruction, social-emotional strategies, and structural alignments can address their specific needs.
Margarita Calderón and Shawn Slakk, authors of the book Success with Multicultural Newcomers and English Learners: Proven Practices for School Leadership Teams, will share how not only ESL teachers, but also all core content teachers in a school can easily integrate vocabulary, reading comprehension, and writing into every subject.
