In this workshop, participants will learn multiple strategies to meet the needs of English learners in the productive domains of speaking and writing. Giving English learners authentic feedback in speaking and writing is a critical practice in order for them to thrive. Participants will practice many of these strategies and leave ready to implement them in any lesson, at any grade level, and with any content area. Join us for a fun-filled workshop.
