This professional development sequence is for content area teachers on supporting English Language Learners (ELs) in classroom instruction and assessment. The sequence will run over the course of the school year, with six sessions and three observation/debriefing visits. Four sessions will be 2.5 hour face-to-face meetings, and two sessions will be delivered online with the equivalent time commitment. The sessions will provide research-based content through interactive and contextualized sessions. The sessions will be anchored in 5e’s in EL content area instruction: engage, explore, explain, extend, and evaluate. Around these themes, the PD includes reading and vocabulary development, home language support, interaction and oral proficiency, family/community engagement, and assessment.
