Time: 10:00 a.m.–2:30 p.m. Mountain Time

Location: Crowne Plaza Albuquerque
1901 University Boulevard NE
Albuquerque, NM 87102

Description: The purpose of the event is to share promising and effective practices for English learner students and the research-based evidence behind those practices, with a focus on integrated and designated English Language Development (ELD). This event will provide the opportunity for participants not only to hear from experts and district leaders from New Mexico and California about educational practices that support English learner students but also to participate in a hands-on lesson demonstration.

Participants will:

  • Learn about ELD as a comprehensive system that incorporates both integrated and designated lessons.
  • Receive strategies for implementing for designated ELD, a targeted instructional time in which lessons build into and from discipline-specific content learning.
  • Learn about pedagogical design that incorporates development of English language proficiency while it engages in rich, rigorous, and relevant academic content learning.
  • Gain a better understanding of a context for teaching and learning that culturally and linguistically sustains and affirms students’ multiple and intersecting identities.

Partnership or Research Alliance: Southwest English Learners (SWEL) Research Partnership

Audience: This event is designed for teachers, instructional coaches, site administrators, district administrators, state administrators, and university staff.
