(Webinar) Building English Language Learners’ Literacy Afterschool
August 22, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
Building the literacy proficiency of all learners is essential to equip them with the skills they will need as they navigate through the academic, professional, and personal facets of their lives. For the more than 4 million English language learner (ELL) students who attend public schools nationwide, it is more critical than ever to provide this growing population with the supports to develop their literacy skills both in and out of school.
Tune in to this webinar and hear from programs featured in the Dollar General Afterschool Literacy Issue Brief, “Afterschool Providing Key Literacy Support to English Language Learner Students,” including the Dollar General Afterschool Literacy Award winner, Columbus State Community College’s ESL Afterschool Communities. Promising practices when working with ELL students and the essential supports programs can provide will be discussed, as well as the steps programs can take to help their ELL students thrive in school, work, and life.
