The challenges of the global COVID-19 pandemic are many. Although distance learning has quickly become the default solution for the more than 54 million students displaced by school closures, it is estimated that 25-50 percent of the 5 million English language learners around the country either do not have the appropriate technology devices needed for online learning or access to the internet. Join us to learn more about some best practices we are seeing thus far for both groups of ELLs—those with Internet access and those without.


Available for one-hour of PD credit. A certificate of completion will be available for download at the end of your session.

On Demand version will be available in closed captioning in English and Spanish.

I enjoyed the webinar and
I enjoyed the webinar and really like several suggestions and common sense approaches of calling to see if everything is OK...the translation APs....suggestions for simple lesson and the reasons ESOL students may not be responding. I would recommend this webinar to others and also liked the parent section and how to help parents organize.
