Event description
As classes resume to in-person instruction this fall, it is important that teachers reflect on their approaches with Multilingual Learners

About this event

Traditional teaching and learning have been profoundly disrupted this past year because of the pandemic. As classes resume to in-person instruction this fall, it is important that teachers reflect on their approaches with Multilingual Learners (ML) to support re- assimilation into classroom instruction and assess deeper learning they can build upon.

The multilingual student population is the one group mostly affected by the shift to virtual learning. As these learners return to the physical classroom context, what should teachers be sensitive to allow for a smoother transition back to the new normal?

In this two-hour workshop, participants will engage in interactive and collaborative activities that explore:

  • Reevaluating instructional units & pacing guides to determine key skills MLs must learn,
  • Adopting performance assessments to stimulate knowledge transfer and evaluate deeper learning,
  • Infusing social-emotional strategies throughout the curriculum to decrease anxiety and help build relationships,
  • Emphasizing the use of translanguaging during instruction to create bridges between the home language and English.

These are some of the topics that will be discussed in the workshop. Come join our learning community and bring your questions and ideas to share with the group!

Organizer TCNJ - Educator Professional Development

Organizer of Teaching and Assessing Multilingual Learners After a Difficult Year

The TCNJ School of Education provides high-quality academic programs to students studying at the undergraduate and graduate levels. With a legacy in education innovation dating to 1855, we are equally committed to our students and our profession. We prepare teachers, counselors, and school administrators who are critical thinkers and capable researchers. As lifelong learners, our graduates are poised to lead positive change throughout their careers, even as educational issues and practices evolve.

Founded in 1855 as the first teacher-training school in New Jersey, and the ninth in the nation, The College of New Jersey has a long commitment to the transformative power of education. Today, the School of Education is the steward of this legacy, and continues the college’s original mandate to prepare active, informed, and self-reflective educators committed to the right of all students to learn, grow, and thrive. Guiding our work is the shared vision that teachers and other school professionals can and should be agents for positive social change.


Through meaningful, challenging academics and collaborative partnerships with the P–12 community, the School of Education has built a reputation for graduates who are well educated and well prepared for the challenges and opportunities of today’s classrooms. In fact, TCNJ-educated teachers can be found in nearly every district in the state, and the School of Education is recognized throughout the region as the most in-demand source of talented new teachers, counselors, and administrators.


Our connections with the P–12 community allow us to proactively address unmet and emerging needs in education. In recent years, we have developed and launched innovative academic programs in urban education, middle school specialization, and environmental sustainability education, among others. Students and teachers are the direct beneficiaries of our extensive outreach efforts, from summer academies in the public schools to professional development collaborations with local school districts.


Located in suburban Ewing, New Jersey, the School of Education is housed in its own dedicated building. Opened in 2012, the three-story, 72,000-square-foot Education Building models the collaborative, technology-rich environment that our students will encounter in contemporary classrooms and schools. Learning spaces include standard and smart classrooms, a STEM classroom, model classrooms for early childhood and elementary education, and an observation room for counselor education as well as a computer lab, seminar room, auditorium, and extensive study and gathering spaces.
