The new Common Core State Standards in English-language arts/literacy demand more sophisticated language and literacy skills from all students, especially those who are still learning English. In this webinar, English-language acquisition experts from the Understanding Language initiative at Stanford University will share resources and advice to educators on how to deepen and accelerate the learning and instruction of English-language learners (ELLs), develop content-rich ELA/literacy lessons for ELLs and provide the varying levels of support ELLs will need to meet the new standards.
Kenji Hakuta (co-chair of Understanding Language, Stanford University) and George Bunch (University of California, Santa Cruz) will lead this discussion.
Lesli A. Maxwell, staff writer, Education Week will be the moderator.
Time: 12 pm-1 pm (PDT); 3 pm-4 pm (EST)
