Snapshot:For many teachers and administrators the challenge of educating the ELL student can feel overwhelming. Many content teachers feel ill-equipped to work with students who struggle with academic language and are often unaccustomed to the structure or customs of the US or Canadian classroom. How can administrators better prepare teachers for this daunting challenge?
In Proven Strategies for Teaching ELLs,Dr. Suzanne Irujo will provide tools educators can use to improve communication with ELLs and their parents and create a more successful learning environment.
Dr. Irujo also will dispel many myths about teaching ELLs and provide specific techniques on how to improve teaching practices for English language learners in English, math, social studies and science.
Author of several books on English language learners, Dr. Irujo has been a teacher and teacher educator in the fields of bilingual education, ESL, and foreign language education for 30 years. Her public school experience includes teaching elementary bilingual education and ESL, teaching high school ESL and Spanish, and administering a K-12 ESL program.

In this 90-minute presentation, Dr. Irujo describes how to identify the varied needs of ELLs from their profiles, how to integrate their native language into instruction, and how to structure the classroom so ELLs feel accepted and are better able to learn.
Because academic language poses a major stumbling block for English language learners Dr. Irujo also will present a successful approach to integrating academic language into math, English, science and social studies lessons.

- How to structure the classroom so ELLs feel accepted and are better able to learn
