PreConvention Institute: Equipped for Success: ELLs in High School Equivalency Testing

9:00am - 4:00pm EDT
Presented at: TESOL 2016

Update: this session has been cancelled. 

Adults learning English may struggle with the language and content needed for high school equivalency (HSE) instruction. Cultural assumptions in materials may also challenge them.

In this workshop, participants practice evidence-based strategies to help students learn HSE content while improving language skills and building problem-solving and critical thinking skills. Finally, participants create or adapt activities for their own instructional contexts.
