Student-Centered Co-Teaching for ELL Learners


This presentation aims to give educators the tools they need to successfully implement co-teaching methods that will meet their ELL students’ needs. Participants will learn about the application of the six co-teaching models.  They will apply their background knowledge and experiences to the process of relationship building.  Educators will build upon their knowledge of assessment and data collection for the purposes of student-centered co-teaching. Participants will examine the importance of analyzing data when co-planning for ELL needs.
