Teacher Voices Webinar: Working with ELL and Immigrant Students
DateWednesday, May 11, 2011 - 4:00pm - 5:00pm
Join the College Board Advocacy & Policy Center and the National Writing Project in a free webinar as we release a new report, Teacher Voices: Immigration, Language and Culture, and discuss the report’s policy recommendations with practicing classroom teachers who work with English language learners and immigrant students. This report, produced in collaboration with NWP and Phi Delta Kappa International, explores the experiences of six practicing classroom teachers who work with ELL and immigrant students.
Hear from three teachers featured in the report as they discuss how our schools are serving ELL and immigrant students, the strengths these students bring to our classes and society, best teaching practices and policy recommendations.
• Brandy De Alba, Teacher, Roosevelt Elementary School, Stockton, CA
• Sharon Ornelas, Teacher, Thomas Edison High School, Minneapolis, MN
• Grace Raffaele, Teacher Consultant, New York City Writing Project
at The Flushing International High School, Queens, NY
In support of this report, we are also releasing videos that feature each of the six profiled teachers. Learn more about the teachers and their thoughts on the issues and practices of working with ELL and immigrant students.
