Collaboration and Co-Teaching Conference: Integrated Services for English Language Learners

Friday, December 4, 2015; 8:30 a.m.-3 p.m. Atrium, Suffolk Center campus, East Farmingdale

Lead Presenters and Conference Organizers: Dr. Andrea Honigsfeld and Dr. Maria G. Dove
Collaboration is an essential 21st century skill that all teachers need to engage in for the sake of diverse student populations. In light of the changes to CR Part 154, stand alone English as a New Language classes will no longer satisfy the requirements. English learners will need to receive integrated services, which may be satisfied through coteaching. This all-day conference will explore evidence-based collaborative practices and effective coteaching models that allow for differentiation of instruction and enhance ELLs' academic and linguistic development.
