Language, Literacy, and Learning in the Content Areas
Members of the Understanding Language team stand in solidarity with the Dreamers and defend the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. We condemn the executive branch’s recent decision to rescind the DACA program and hope that congressional leadership will recognize the presence, efforts, and talents of these young people in our country.
Press Release from New America, August 16, 2017:
Two new reports from New America’s Education Policy Program stress the need to improve data quality and literacy to better track the performance of English learners (ELs), the fastest-growing student group in K–12 public education.
We will be offering several online courses this fall, geared toward teachers and school and district leaders to support rich academic uses of language to attain content learning and drive educational change.
