OSSE invites all K-12 educators who support English learners (ELs) to a two-day professional development workshop on March 24-25, 2020. This workshop is designed to increase educators’ knowledge around best practices to grade ELs in content area classes. Participant learning will revolve around best practices rooted in research about EL grading in classrooms, and the connection between formative assessment and grading. Participants will:

  • Apply practical tools for grading ELs to case studies at the elementary, middle, and high school levels,
  • Build a repertoire of formative assessment that can be used with ELs,
  • Develop and scaffold valid formative assessments for ELs, and
  • Create an action plan for improving the validity of grading systems in their schools for ELs.

Registration is required.
