LINCS ESL Pro Study Circles Support Teachers in Using the ESL Pro Resources
In this how-to session, participants will learn how to facilitate the new freely available LINCS ESL Pro Study Circles to actively engage teachers in learning about and applying innovative strategies in the classroom. The suites of ESL Pro resources focus on: (1) enhancing the rigor of ESL instruction, (2) integrating digital literacy, and (3) contextualizing instruction to support English learners onto career pathways. The study circle guides are based on what is currently known about high-quality professional development. The teacher-centered study circles offer teachers choices to dig into materials that are most relevant in their context and to interact with one another. The step-by-step study circle guides offer flexibility since they can be facilitated either face-to-face or online.
