Keynote: Developing MTSS Strategies for English Learners
MTSS is at times a challenge to understand if we begin to consider it as an individual's/group's meaningful experience which results in a response. Both the person(s) experiencing the event and responding as well as those around them may be deeply affected, this is acutely true for English Learners. We will discuss the implications for this in an educational setting and possible solutions.

No Excuses: Instructional Equity and Excellence
Building a strong instructional focus inclusive of bilingual students is crucial in building equity and access. This workshop session will review the work of authors in the field such as Echevarria, along with differentiation strategies and the Hess Cognitive Rigor Matrix (CRM) with an overlay of ELP standards as a way to begin to plan meaningful instruction. Attendees will reflect on questions such as, What reading, writing, speaking, and listening strategies have you seen effectively implemented in your school/district? How is academic language development integrated into your school’s/district’s instructional priorities? What powerful examples of academic language instruction have you seen in your school/district? Participants will be engaged in an activity to begin initial planning for an instructional focus using these guiding documents.

Instruction and Assessment Strategies for ELs In Elementary & Secondary Education
English learners arrive to our schools with various levels of native and English proficiencies, education levels, ages, and ethnicities. These factors not only effect the pace of student learning and journey to English proficiency, but the requirement of teachers to differentiate. This session will introduce common terminology in the field of ELs, levels of English proficiency, how to differentiate for ELs with WIDA’s Can do Descriptors and SIOP strategies.

Personalizing Learning for ELLs **Participants are encouraged to bring their own device to this session.
Standard II of the Teacher Evaluation Rubric encourages educators to "teach all students" through instruction, learning environment, cultural proficiency and expectations. Reaching diverse student needs, more specifically, specialized populations of students can be challenging. As teachers in low-incidence districts, English Learners (ELs) are a unique population. This workshop will help educators with ways to personalize instruction to meet the needs of their ELs by working smarter, not harder. You will leave with easy-to-implement strategies to personalize learning for these students as well as other strategies that will require some preparation. The purpose is to help teachers make the most of their time while creating the most meaningful learning experiences for their ELs.
