What’s it like to attend?

For all Attendees

All learners, including our nation’s 4.8 million English learners, need opportunities to engage with meaningful core content and to develop grade-level analytical skills while learning English. This institute will provide content providers with the tools, methods and mindset to:

  • Develop a common language and shared vision for improving academic success for diverse learners using ELSF research-based guidelines created by esteemed EL scholars and practitioners
  • Plan and implement high-quality, asset-based learning strategies into core content that meets the needs of English Learners
  • Leverage tools developed by EL experts to analyze and refine current core materials

For returning attendees

  • Deepen understanding of the ELSF guidelines as well as the expertise to plan and implement asset-based learning stategies into core content that meets the needs of diverse learners
  • Increase the expertise of content providers to guide and support the professional growth and capacity of educators to create deliberately crafted and scaffolded learning experiences for ELs

Attendee Requirements

The ELSF Institute has two learning pathways: K-12 ELA and math. Each pathway has two levels. Level I is for new content provider teams and Level II is for returning content provider teams. Each organization must commit to sending a minimum of three attendees and a maximum of ten per content developer team with at least one attendee being a writer. Each content provider organization may send more than one team (math and ELA or multiple grade teams). Other content area providers (Science, social studies, etc) are encouraged to attend, but must choose between ELA or math pathways.
