ESL Teachers Learn New Strategies for Promoting Literacy
Sharon Hull, a national consultant with Heinemann, worked with Union County ESL teachers on September 18. Ms. Hull conducted an all day workshop combining strategies from “The Continuum of Literacy Learning” and Reader’s Workshop aimed at promoting literacy for ELL students. ESL teachers worked together to design ideas and lessons for supporting ELL students in the regular classroom, co-teaching situations and Pull-out classes. ESL teachers were given materials to take back and share with classroom teachers. Ms. Hull will return in January to continue the workshop, adding writing strands. We are looking forward to utilizing the strategies shared and learning more in order to support our students.
