This 4 part professional learning series will use history and science content to provide district teams tools and strategies to plan instruction for English Learners (EL).  Participants will be provided with tools to lead their departments, sites and district to implement language development strategies from the California History- Social Science Framework (adopted July of 2016) and Science Framework (adopted November 2016).  The workshops will include model lessons that use content to develop language and incorporate academic discourse. Participants will then develop their standards-based instructional materials for developing academic language for all students. Over the course of the series, participants will explore the role of language in the content areas and develop a structure to provide all students access to demanding curriculum.
