Tips and Tools for English Learner Parents and Families
Greetings to our Region 10 English Learner parents, families, and colleagues! The English Learner support team here at Region 10 is so excited to announce a new series designed especially for you! Starting this month, we will begin sharing tools, tips, and strategies to help you help your students attain English proficiency and develop high levels of academic achievement. Each part of the series will include an infographic with linked resources and tips that you can explore on your own and with your family. We will follow up with a short video clip that will help walk you through the highlights shared in the infographic.
Take a look at the video below to learn more about the series and the different topics that will be covered. Don't forget to check back with us every month for a new topic.
- Share the infographic with your EL parents and families.
- After sharing the infographic, invite parents to a live coffee chat or virtual cafe. Parents can have the opportunity to share ideas, strategies, and practice the tips shared on the infographic.
- Follow up with the video clip which provides additional tips, tools, and strategies.
