The 2011 CREATE capstone conference, held in Austin, Texas on November 3-4, 2011, highlighted current research on methods for building literacy skills and oral language development for English language learners across the content areas. CREATE researchers described their work on a school-wide intervention targeting 7th grade English language learners in science, social studies, English language arts, and math. Other top scholars discussed the implications of their research on supporting English language learners' language and literacy development across the curriculum.

This conference was attended by leaders in state and regional agencies, school districts, schools, and colleges of education. The conference supported participants’ learning with essential readings on the central themes of the conference, keynote presentations, question-and-answer sessions with presenters, and small group interactions with colleagues.
