FREE: Understanding Home Language Supports, Synchronous Course (TRLE ELLs)

In this session, participants will develop an understanding of how to include home language supports in content area instruction. Included in this training, participants will receive access to short webinettes created by content area teachers and ENL teachers, to help engage ELLs in the content areas. Webinettes will be shared in Science and Math, and additional webinettes will be coming in ELA and in Social Studies. The webinettes are delivered in simplified English, plus 10 additional languages. The webinettes can be used with students, both in remote learning and in hybrid learning environments, can be used with parents to support their children at home, and can also be used in in-person classes to help ELLs build foundational skills and knowledge. Approximately one day prior to the session, participants registered will receive a Zoom link for the training. As a result of participating in this session, teachers will have a deeper understanding of how to support their ELLs using home language without seeking fully translated texts and/or lessons.

FREE: Creating a Professional Learning Culture Based on SEL (TRLE-SEL #3)

In this session, we will be exploring how adults in education can begin to understand and recognize self-awareness related to implicit bias and social awareness to better understand the perspectives of others.

Through a review of transformative SEL, we will continue deepening our understanding of the CASEL Core Competencies to promote and leverage equity and promote personal growth. This deepening awareness contributes to healthier culture and climate of schools, and the overall professional learning community.

No need to have attended any other SEL session to attend this one! You are welcome even if this is your first.
