A Professional Development Model: Lessons Learned
Wednesday, May 19, 2010, 12:30 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. (Eastern)
In order for professional development related to content-area learning for ELLs to really pay off, what are the critical factors at the district, school, and classroom levels that need to be addressed?
This web briefing describes a professional development project The Education Alliance has initiated with three Massachusetts urban school districts. Under a 5-year Title III grant, Alliance staff are working with secondary content-area teachers in the three districts to enhance their teaching practice as it relates to English language learners. Now in its third year, the project has had successes, and staff have learned some lessons, leading to project modifications. Presenters from the Alliance's Equity and Diversity division share their successes and lessons learned about critical factors at the district, school, and classroom levels to be addressed for professional development to be relevant and effective.
This is the third in a series of web briefings presented by The Education Alliance at Brown University's Equity and Diversity Division. The Alliance houses the federally-funded New England Equity Assistance Center.
This webinar is designed especially for state, district and school leaders and administrators, professional development providers, and ELL program directors.
