Beginning in 2012, Center City’s English as a Second Language (ESL) department implemented ESL After the Bell, an after school language development program to increase proficiency in reading, writing, listening, and speaking. As part of this program, students completed research projects that focused on the reflection of and appreciation for various cultures around the world. All projects were cross-curricular and aligned with Common Core. This session will walk participants through the planning and implementation of ESL After the Bell. Learn why this program was recognized for its innovation by New America’s Dual Language Learners National Workgroup and featured by the Data Quality Campaign.
