More Success for ELL Students

original blog post about Creating Success for ELL Students

Dr. Sharon Faber’s September 30th session on Creating Success for ELL Students is full- however- she’s agreed to facilitate another one on November 7th! At that event, she will also provide specific and practical techniques that can be used by teachers in all subject areas to assist ELL students with their comprehension and vocabulary skills. For more details on this full-day session in November at the Brentwood Conference Center, visit our registration page.

Here’s more about the training: as the student population becomes increasingly linguistically diverse, educators are faced with the challenge of providing academically rigorous instruction to ELLs. This requires teachers to adopt new strategies that challenge learners to think at higher levels. How do we modify our teaching strategies in the classroom to make sure that these appropriate opportunities happen for ELL students? While many teachers were never trained to teach reading, writing, or ELL students, they get ELL students who are struggling readers or even non-readers in their classes.

Dr. Faber received her bachelor of science degree from Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, Texas, her master’s in educational leadership from the University of Texas at San Antonio, and her doctorate in educational leadership from the University of Virginia.
