Whats Different About Teaching Reading to English Language Learners?
This workshop provided K-8 educators with an understanding of how successful reading instruction for English language learners (ELLs) differs from reading instruction for native speakers. The training explained how the recommendations of the National Reading Panel (2000) and the National Literacy Panel (2006) have informed reading instruction for ELLs and provided effective strategies to improve instruction for ELLs.

Presenters: Betty Ansin Smallwood and Lisa Tabaku
Hilton, Duluth Room 704, 3:00 - 5:45 pm
