Every teacher is becoming a language teacher as our English learner population continues to grow, making a greater impact on instruction delivery. Are you waiting for students to learn more English? Are you wondering how you could tell their individual language differences? Have you seen how they progress, but you just need a roadmap to the next best step?

In this edWebinar, viewers analyze language proficiency using a probability quadrant to identify language skills that are measurable and observable. They are able to immediately apply these aspects of productive and receptive language with their English learner groups.

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to PreK-12 teachers, especially English as a second language and foreign language instruction teachers, instructional coaches, language arts specialists, curriculum coordinators, and school leaders.
