Teachers Attend E.S.O.L Training
On September 16th, 2010 teachers attended training on meeting the needs of English Language Learners in the Regular Classroom. Helen Giles, a trainer for the Federal Programs Office, shared valuable information and resources with teachers including an overview of the stages of Language Acquisition, types of language proficiency, and how to analyze and use the data from the Language Proficiency Assessment. She also shared strategies on how to differentiate instruction, specific modifications to utilize, and web resources available. Teachers learned about the related resources available in our school media center and our professional development library as well.
