In this module, you will learn information that will impact your teaching of English Language Learners, or ELLs. ELLs are the fastest growing segment in our schools today, yet their graduation rates are significantly behind that of their peers.

Each of our learning modules follows our four-part framework:
LearnIt. Our ELL Best Practices course includes 30 videos broken out into 6 different sections giving educators a depth of information on the topic.
DoIt. Each course includes an opportunity to practice the theory in a classroom-focused scenario. In this course teachers are asked to choose three instructional or classroom management strategies presented in the LearnIt section and explain how they hope to implement them.
ShareIt. Using the built-in community, collaboration is encouraged. Each course allows educators to share their DoIt experience as well as any additional learning.
ProveIt. At the end of each learning module an assessment is provided for educators to demonstrate what they have learned.
