Do you work with a large number of bilingual and multilingual learners (ESL, ELLs) in your school?
If so, then this 20 minute video is an ideal resource to help you understand how to positively impact and support the progress of the BMLs within your school.
In most schools and school districts, ESL teachers serve BMLs with the lowest-levels of English proficiency or those who may be struggling, but what about the rest of the students? How can they get the support they need even if they cannot access ESL services?
This tutorial shows you how supporting your BMLs through a focus on whole-school initiatives and educational programs can actually keep them afloat and moving forward. Teacher expertise is the core of this approach but there are other key elements which provide a strong foundation for students' growth and development.
Authors and consultants, Alison Schofield and Francesca McGeary lead this insightful training. Based in Dubai, UAE, they love to share their knowledge and expertise with teachers around the world through their company, IngeniousEd and their global training institute for teachers, the "Institute for Educators of BMLs". They provide training courses and free webinars for teachers (www.educatorsofbmls.com).
