WVEC TITLE III CONSORTIUM

April 2019 UPDATES

Desktop Monitoring and WVEC WIDA/ELL Videos

Some of you have contacted us that you are going through TITLE monitoring. If you should need sign in sheets or anything else from us for you to report on TITLE III, please contact us and we will get the needed info to you asap. Several of you have also asked about the WIDA 101 videos that can be shared with your staff as evidence of WIDA training.


Here are links to three videos created for the consortium:

WIDA 101 (1/2 hour long - BASICS of WIDA: Standards and Resources available)

WIDA 101 - LONG VERSION (1 hr - Includes info on MPI's and lesson planning)

ELL101 (45 minutes) Includes ideas for sentence frames, visual support, word banks, critical thinking, language development, assessing EL's and more.


All three videos along with the Google Slides for each video can be found under the VIDEOS folder in our TITLE III CONSORTIUM GOOGLE FOLDER.
