Teacher teams will walk away with a unit frame, several strategies to use in a classroom with varying language proficiency levels, and the beginnings of daily lesson plans, as well as a process for collaboration and co-teaching.  *Please note that this PD is designed for participants to attend in pairs.

Dual Language Showcase
Monday, October 28, 2019 from 9:00 AM-12:00 PM

New York State regulations require schools to have a Dual Language Program if:
• 20 or more ELLs with a common L1 attend school in the same grade level across the district

Does your school have a Dual Language Program for ELLs? Are you wondering how to begin a Dual Language Program? This PD will give an overview of New York State definitions and requirements of Dual Language Programs and options to begin to implement a program in your school.  For this half-day session, participants will have an opportunity to interact with local schools also seeking to improve/implement a Dual Language Program. For additional support, representatives from curriculum companies will showcase materials that were designed for ENL curriculum supports, including Dual Language. Participants will have access to samples in order to begin to visualize how these resources may support individual district and school goals in supporting their ELLs.  Register on Frontline/My Learning Plan here: https://www.mylearningplan.com/WebReg/ActivityProfile.asp?I=3184163&D=15197
