We ask that you look at all students in your classroom as English Language Learners...everyone is at level 1 or 2 up to level 5! How do you address the learning of all? This session will:

  • Support and build your capacity in meeting the needs of English Language Learners within your diverse classroom
  • Heighten intentional use of universal, targeted and specialized strategies
  • Foster student engagement and achievement

This learning opportunity is being subsidized through funding from Alberta Education.
