Literacy and Language Gains for Long-Term English Learners: Shifting Policy and Practices

70 Minutes

Dr. Elena Izquierdo knows that there are multiple forces at work that are changing the landscape in which long-term English learners engage with the academic standards to which they are accountable. In this webinar, she shares her insights into the kinds of policy and practice shifts needed to ensure that we leverage our long-term English learners' language assets to the max—for optimal outcomes. She will also share examples from her experiences working with school districts across the country and from the Literacy Camp she runs at University of Texas, El Paso.
