“The opportunity of bilingualism is an important gift to give to our students.” The cognitive, cultural, and professional benefits of bilingualism have the potential to broaden learners’ experiences in their careers and academics. In a recent edWebinar, Maya Goodall, Senior Director of EL Curriculum at Lexia Learning, highlighted that 10% of all students in U.S. public schools are emerging bilinguals and emerging multilinguals. Formerly called English Language Learners, students who speak more than one language have demonstrated advantages and awareness of languages, communication skills, memory, decision making, and analytical skills.
In this edWebinar learn how five evidence-based instructional best practices help English Learner students engage in classroom instruction.
This edWebinar will discuss the importance of family and community involvement—particularly on behalf of English learners.
This edWebinar with Dr. Joyce King and Dr. Helen Teague will examine the importance of early literacy in order to support the long-term success of students.
In this edWebinar, we will provide practical solutions to encourage and support English Learner students to speak—and speak often.
