Register for Building Equity for English Learners in the Content Areas, June 17-20, St. Helena, California

Leading with Learning

Ready to launch your efforts for improving teaching and learning for English learners and other culturally and linguistically diverse students?

In this three-day intensive institute, teachers and leaders learn how to implement integrated science, literacy, and English language development (ELD).

The institute is designed to deepen and broaden understanding of California’s ELA, ELD, and Science Standards and the CA ELA/ELD Curriculum Framework, including supporting teachers to plan for integrated and designated ELD.

An additional learning session, offered on the fourth day, allows participants to focus on leadership or application to Spanish dual immersion settings. Leaders focus on site and district-level implementation. This session addresses topics such as professional learning, program components, and implementing and sustaining effective instructional practices.

Who Will Benefit

  • School and district teams of teacher and teacher leaders
  • Instructional coaches and principals
  • District and county office leaders
  • Teacher education faculty

What You Will Learn

The institute will focus on strengthening teaching and learning in four major areas:

  • Fostering collaborative academic conversations among students, abundant writing, and interactive reading around complex texts and intellectually challenging content
  • Observing students closely to provide both planned and just-in-time scaffolding
  • Building disciplinary literacy by engaging students in text-oriented talk about the language in complex texts
  • Creating positive and culturally responsive learning environments
