Research documents that evidence based instruction positively impacts student achievement including ELL learners (National Reading Panel, 2000). This seminar provides opportunities for educators to develop lessons that integrate the TESOL Standards – Teaching English as a Second Language I-VI. Integrated, culturally responsive language and content instruction is designed based on analysis of standardized and formative assessments. Coursework prepares educators to implement the Common Core State Standards and meet state and professional standards.
Please check with your school district to ensure acceptance of this professional development seminar. After participating in the seminar and completing all the assignments, you will receive a certificate of completion for 20 Contact Hours that you can present to your school district. Should you decide to pursue an endorsement in TESOL with our university partner(s) in the future, your seminar work and payment can be applied toward your tuition and coursework in the graduate class.
