**3-Week Online Course** Oral language provides the foundation for literacy skills for English language learners of all ages and proficiencies. Moving this principle into instructional practice, however, can present a challenge. This course will give teachers of ELLs the background and tools necessary to increase opportunities for oral language in the classroom. Mid-West RBERN is offering the course online through the Schoology platform so that participation is self-paced and flexible. Participants will engage with readings, videos and discussion boards on a weekly basis to complete the course and receive 3 CTLE hours.
