English language learners, struggling students, children of poverty, and new immigrants must participate in a full and rich curriculum. Too often we find English language learners enrolled in programs limited to English as a Second Language, English Language Arts, remedial reading practices, and remedial math classes. Issues of inequality often begin with placement decisions that are based on reading abilities, but may neglect to look at other factors. What practices should staff implement that are best known to expedite the achievement of English learners and other struggling students? Key evidence-based strategies that expedite the acquisition of academic vocabulary, improve reading comprehension, and writing practices across content areas will be reviewed. This session will be interactive.
