English Learners in the Inquiry Process

12/11/2019 at 8:30AM - 3:00PM EST
Location: CES, 40 Lindeman Drive, Trumbull, CT



Audience: Science and social studies teachers 3-12, TESOL/bilingual teachers, coordinators, coaches, and administrators.

Session Description: 

In this session, educators in this session will participate in a structured inquiry to answer their own compelling and/or driving questions about English learners (ELs) in the inquiry-based learning environments. The group will use the CT English Language Proficiency (CELP) Standards to help interpret performance of ELs in their classrooms and determine what supports are best suited for ELs at different levels of English language proficiency. Additionally, participants will gather specific information and methods in order to answer their questions.

Learning Outcomes: 
Participants will construct a response to an inquiry question about ELs in their inquiry-based learning environments and build capacity to support ELs--from newcomer to advanced--in the experience of science and social studies.
