Presented at: TL Conference 2017

This case study paper presents data from Enhanced Education Connections, a network of Teacher Leaders (TLs) dedicated to improving the educational achievement of English learner (EL) students. Targeting teachers with limited prior exposure to EL methods, the project seeks to advance educators’ instructional capacity for meeting the needs of ELs by nurturing them as leaders, and facilitating the growth of their own network of other practitioners, with whom they provide guidance, feedback, and resources regarding EL-relevant instruction.
