Description

Nine percent of students in the US speak a language other than English at home, and the number of ELL students in public schools is going up. Even the most experienced teachers can be overwhelmed by the additional layers of differentiation that multilingual classrooms require, and many districts struggle to fully support this growing population of students.

Better meet the needs of English language learners with purposeful technology and differentiated instruction. In this recorded webinar, you'll find:

  • Impact studies that demonstrate why districts must differentiate instruction for ELL students

  • How to incorporate audio, visual, vocabulary, and native language  support into your district’s math and ELA curriculum

  • Apps and activities that offer creative and authentic speaking and listening practice
