Strategies and best practices for English Learners apply to students of various needs. This presentation has three areas of focus: 1) Newcomers and those with the lowest levels of English proficiency; 2) Instruction and assessment in the content areas; and 3) Cross-cultural understanding and diversity. Participants will learn how the combination of a district’s scope and sequence with ESL resources such as the individual learning plan provides both teacher and learner with a set of tools for rigorous instruction and learning.

Joann Lucero Runion and Katie Barcy bring updates from the Tennessee Department of Education. Joseph Whinery gives a brief review and demonstration of some tools available for all ESL teachers in Tennessee to accompany student ILP’s.
