The California School Board Association Annual Education Conference and Trade Show is considered one of the premiere education programs and events of its kind. Educators and administrators from various districts come together to discuss the ways in which we can continue to impact and improve student success in the classroom. This year, CTB/McGraw-Hill is proud to be presenting in one of their many impressive workshops. The workshop, “Preparing Academic English Learners for the Common Core State Standards: Targeting Student Language Needs” is:
- Date: Friday, November 30, 2012
- Time: 4:00 – 5:15 PM
- Location: Moscone West, Room 2020
The Los Angeles Unified School District conducted a study of the proficiency patterns of Academic English Learners (AEL) as part of a larger effort to support all learners in acquiring academic English skills needed for school and career success. Join our workshop to learn about the results, including proficiency patterns across grades and subgroups, triangulated with evidence from theoretical research and field staff input.
Plus, learn how LAS Links can help your educators recognize the role of AE in the mastery of academic content across all curriculum areas, and ultimately strengthen your ELD program.
