ELLs: Transitioning to Tomorrow
December 12-14, 2012
JW Marriott Tucson Starr Pass, Tucson, Arizona
In Arizona’s fifth year of implementation of the Structured English Immersion (SEI) Models, the focus of Arizona’s educators will be on meeting 21st century global challenges. Not only must educators ready their students to meet the challenges and demands of the English Language Proficiency Standards (ELPS) but also to transition to the rigor of Arizona’s Common Core Standards. Now more than ever before, it is critical that ELL educators understand how to apply successfully relevant methodologies inside an SEI, ILLP or mainstream classroom. ELL instruction must often be differentiated; how can educators accomplish that? What are text complexity, informational text and academic language, and how do they relate to ELLs, curriculum and instruction. How do educators make the necessary ‘shifts’ to be ready for Arizona’s Common Core standards? How can Arizona’s ELL educators best utilize technology to engage their students? How do Arizona’s educators design their curriculum to create college and career ready students? How will the new assessment tools work? How can we, as ELL educators, best enable our ELL students in successfully transitioning to tomorrow…
Online registration for participants will open on September 1, 2012. A separate and optional online pre-registration will be available and required for attendance at the ELL Teacher of the Year awards banquet.
