Supporting Skilled Immigrants: An ESOL Practitioner's Toolkit

Facilitators: Paul Feltman, Katherine Gebremedhin, Marilyn Rymniak

Audience: ESOL instructors, program managers

How often in community ESOL classes does a teacher face the dilemma of what to do when adult learners with limited literacy skills in their native languages sit next to learners with degrees in engineering, business, or medicine? How often are immigrants with high school diplomas or advanced degrees misdirected into adult basic education or GED prep classes meant for native speakers of English? This workshop will address these challenges, discussing and analyzing case studies of ways to help skilled immigrants and immigrant professionals navigate career pathways. Participants will receive a hard copy of a resource toolkit for teachers who teach educated and skilled immigrants. The seven chapters of the toolkit include innovative ESOL classroom strategies and lesson plans, best practices and effective TESOL program models, essential credential and licensing information, and critical incidents and case studies to help teachers guide students toward success.

Date: ESL 113-13 - Thursday, October 25

Time: 9:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

 

 

* This workshop is part of the professional development offered to teachers and program staff at adult education programs in New York City.
