Arkansas ELP | Module 1

Reformulating Our Practice

In this first module, workshop participants will be introduced to 10 shifts in instructional practice, how they impact their educational environment, and how they give English learner students access to the language, analytical practices, and content they need for school success. This session will build the capacity of each participant to guide their colleagues in their home schools and school districts to an understanding of the core principles of the ELP Standards.



Participants will be able to describe and explain the significant shifts in teaching and learning for English learners. They will also have the context needed to interpret the ELP Standards.
