Evaluating English Learner Services & Results for Accountability & Instructional Improvement, Part 2
English Learners (ELs) are one of the nation's fastest growing student populations, comprising 7% of all K-12 students nationwide. In this two-part, interactive presentation, WestEd's Robert Linquanti and Linda Carstens, recognized experts in the field, will share tools and strategies district and site leadership teams can use to evaluate practices and systematically improve outcomes for EL students.
In this session, led by Linda Carstens, participants will examine a systemic approach to EL instruction, based on a coherent philosophy, pedagogy, and set of instructional practices. The session explores the link between language and literacy and language and content.
