Educators teaching English Language Learners have the responsibility to ensure access to the most effective and appropriate learning environment. When an ELL student is struggling academically, educators need to understand the multiple and complex factors affecting a student's learning. Student behaviors observed may appear similar to characteristics of a disability and educators need to carefully rule out all factors that are not intrinsic to the individual. It is challenging to distinguish if language acquisition, cultural and linguistic diversity, gaps in learning or an actual disorder is at play. A multidisciplinary team must investigate, paying special attention to contexts and rule out systemic or external factors prior to making a referral.

In this workshop, participants will examine factors that must be considered when a student is at risk for referral to special education:
- What are the legal requirements of serving English Language Leaners?
- Who has knowledge of the process of second language acquisition and the linguistic background and history of the student?
- How does the quality of current classroom instruction and prior schooling experiences impact student performance?
- Are cultural dynamics or social-emotional resilience influencing interactions?
- How are interventions and assessments being utilized in decision making?
- What are the clinical markers of a disability and is there a deficit in the home language?

Educators face a unique challenge when students are culturally, linguistically and academically diverse and yet, they are expected to meet common standards. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a scientifically valid framework based on cognitive neuroscience that suggests variability within the learner is predictable and can be systematically addressed. UDL provides us with the guidelines to improve and optimize teaching and learning for all by planning instruction from the beginning that is culturally responsive and linguistically appropriate by being flexible, engaging, validating, strategic and motivating. When applied to English language learners, we can predict and create the access points students will need to succeed with a "one size fits all" curriculum and standards.

In this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Examine the Universal Design for Learning framework to see how it applies to teaching culturally and linguistically diverse learners.
- Identify the potential barriers, preferences and supports for multi-lingual learners within the content areas.
- Design instruction that takes into consideration learner variability and anticipate student needs.
- Utilize the principles of UDL to develop students that are purposeful and motivated, resourceful and knowledgeable, strategic and goal oriented learners.
- Analyze illustrations (case studies, lesson plans and classroom examples) of UDL in action for language learners and all students.

A challenge faced by educators when teaching English Language Learners is knowing whether a student's academic struggle is due to the typical process of acquiring a new language or to something more intrinsic, such as a disability. When learning a new language, individuals might display certain behaviors that can be mistaken for a disability because of their similar characteristics and educators must exercise caution when making decisions about referrals for special education. This workshop will invite participants to examine the behaviors associated with new language acquisition as well as clinical markers of a disability. We will identify factors that must be considered prior to referring an ELL student for an evaluation. Educators will engage in case study discussions to consider how languages, culture, social-emotional dynamics and academics interact and impact student achievement.

Educators face a unique challenge when students are culturally, linguistically and academically diverse and yet, they are expected to meet common standards. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a scientifically valid framework based on cognitive neuroscience that suggests variability within the learner is predictable and can be systematically addressed. UDL provides us with the guidelines to improve and optimize teaching and learning for all by planning instruction from the beginning that is culturally responsive and linguistically appropriate by being flexible, engaging, validating, strategic and motivating. When applied to English language learners, we can predict and create the access points students will need to succeed with a "one size fits all" curriculum and standards.

In this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Examine the Universal Design for Learning framework to see how it applies to teaching culturally and linguistically diverse learners.
- Identify the potential barriers, preferences and supports for multi-lingual learners within the content areas.
- Design instruction that takes into consideration learner variability and anticipate student needs.
- Utilize the principles of UDL to develop students that are purposeful and motivated, resourceful and knowledgeable, strategic and goal oriented learners.
- Analyze illustrations (case studies, lesson plans and classroom examples) of UDL in action for language learners and all students.

Program: 2019-2020 - HV-RBE-RN

Dates: 5/15/2020

Educators face a unique challenge when students are culturally, linguistically and academically diverse and yet, they are expected to meet common standards. Universal Design for Learning (UDL) is a scientifically valid framework based on cognitive neuroscience that suggests variability within the learner is predictable and can be systematically addressed. UDL provides us with the guidelines to improve and optimize teaching and learning for all by planning instruction from the beginning that is culturally responsive and linguistically appropriate by being flexible, engaging, validating, strategic and motivating. When applied to English language learners, we can predict and create the access points students will need to succeed with a "one size fits all" curriculum and standards.

In this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Examine the Universal Design for Learning framework to see how it applies to teaching culturally and linguistically diverse learners.
- Identify the potential barriers, preferences and supports for multi-lingual learners within the content areas.
- Design instruction that takes into consideration learner variability and anticipate student needs.
- Utilize the principles of UDL to develop students that are purposeful and motivated, resourceful and knowledgeable, strategic and goal oriented learners.
- Analyze illustrations (case studies, lesson plans and classroom examples) of UDL in action for language learners and all students.

Registration/Sign-in: 8:30 am - 9:00 am; Workshop begins PROMPTLY at 9 am

Program: 2019-2020 - HV-RBE-RN

Audience: Science Teachers, Administrators, ENL Teachers, Teaching Assistants

Dates: 5/27/2020

Science in the K-12 environment offers a unique opportunity for ELLs to be able to participate in unique and exciting hands-on activities. This workshop will begin by outlining various engaging strategies including methods, techniques, and scaffolds that can be used by science teachers to help ELLs in the classroom. Next, we'll begin by learning as a group a few highly-engaging and culturally relevant science topics that may serve as a springboard for building science interest for ELLs. Then, we will work individually or as small groups to update/adjust either existing science lessons or create brand new lessons that reach all types of learners.

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to effectively apply multiple science-related scaffolding techniques into their own curriculum.
