Bilingual/ESL Virtual Conference
Educators will expand their knowledge with evidence-based information designed for working with Emergent bilingual students and English Learners (ELs). Presentations will be framed around culturally relevant topics that impact the affective, linguistic, and cognitive domains of ELs. Session topics will address dual language, transitioning from L1 to L2, sheltered instruction, assessment, and technology.
Guests will be able to create their own conference experience by choosing the sessions they attend throughout the day. Keynote speakers and session details will be announced soon.
