Differentiating Instruction and Assessment for English Language Learners

This professional development workshop, tailored to the needs of K-12 educators serving English language learners, is delivered by veteran ESL educators, teacher educators, and authors, Shelley Fairbairn and Stephaney Jones-Vo. This interactive and practical full-day learning opportunity provides groundbreaking guidance for districts desiring a consistent, district-wide approach to facilitating ELL academic achievement.

Throughout the presentation, Shelley and Stephaney highlight strategies from their book Differentiating Instruction and facilitate opportunities for teachers to learn how to scaffold student performance by developing content knowledge, skills, and abilities, while simultaneously increasing English language proficiency. Throughout the presentation, they address the roles and responsibilities of both administrators and teachers necessary to ensure increased ELL academic success.

Based on authentic student scenarios from the authors’ practice and a variety of user-friendly templates, each workshop segment targets specific aspects of the differentiation process for English language learners. Hands-on application activities, tied to realistic scenarios and teachers’ own contexts, as well as interaction with colleagues, make the strategies come alive. As a result, teachers can confidently implement new student data-driven strategies upon return to their classrooms.
