Presented by Diane Staehr Fenner and Margo Gottlieb
This interactive webinar presents a framework and a conceptual tool for building ELLs’ academic language—a deal-breaker when it comes to their academic success. Diane Staehr Fenner will present research-based strategies all teachers can apply to ensure multilingual learners simultaneously develop academic language and engage with challenging content.

Participants will learn how to:
Apply strategies to ensure their multilingual learners engage with challenging content
