Course Title: Assessing English Learners (ELs) at the Secondary Level
Course ID: 1825300410
Description:

In this session, participants will learn how to equitably assess and grade English learners (ELs) in the secondary classroom based on research-based criteria.

By examining assessments with the guidelines of Universal Design for Learning (UDL), the stages of English language acquisition, and equal access in mind, participants will evaluate the ways in which they have previously developed and delivered assessments and consider new access points.

Participants will increase their capacity to use the CELP Standards effectively, create assessments that allow ELs to demonstrate their learning, advocate for needs of ELs, and develop appropriate supports and accommodations for ELs.

Participants are encouraged to come in teams (e.g. secondary classroom teacher, coach/department chair, ESL teacher, administrator).

This professional learning opportunity is funded through Title III statewide activities funds and is free for participants.

Please plan to bring your own snacks and lunch.

Objectives: As a result of taking part in this workshop, participants will:
  • Understand how language development impacts success
  • Engage in interactive learning experiences that examine factors for success for ELs taking assessments in secondary courses
