English learner achievement gap has only continued to widen over the past ten years.
Provo, UT (PRWEB) December 13, 2011
Despite numerous policies and programs designed to help English learners catch up with their English-fluent peers, recent findings from the National Center for Education Statistics show that the English learner achievement gap has only continued to widen over the past ten years. To help educators close the gap, Imagine Learning chief academic officer Marc Liebman and curriculum specialist Mia Allen will share essential strategies for working with English learners in their upcoming webinar, “Turning the Tide: Strategies for Closing the English Learner Achievement Gap.” The live webinar will be held Thursday, December 15, 2011, at 2:00 p.m. MST.
Liebman and Allen will share essential strategies for keeping English learners motivated in the classroom, as well as valuable insights into the issues and roadblocks that can prevent this growing student population from finding success. Attendees will learn how to implement technology-based approaches that are proven to help English learners overcome obstacles and succeed in school. The presenters will also share strategies that educators can implement right away to start narrowing the achievement gap for their English learners.
This one-hour presentation is the final webinar in the 2011 Ahead of the Class series sponsored by Imagine Learning. The series is designed to bring top-tier educators the cutting-edge information they need to deal with today’s most pressing education issues.
