    Elementary ESOL teachers, Ellen Greer and Heather Moulder, will lead teachers through a presentation of how they can create an environment that encourages ELs to speak up and participate without fear, all while embracing their language learning journey. By incorporating information from The 6 Principles for Exemplary Teaching of English Learners, as well as giving valuable resources that can be incorporated daily- teachers can expect to leave with strategies that promote language growth and engaged learners across all domains and in all content areas. Join us to explore strategies for facilitating instructional conversations that include technology, games, and even cooking! Let’s get talking!

She graduated from the State University of West Georgia with her teaching certificate and Masters, and from Lincoln Memorial University with her Specialist degree in Curriculum and Instruction. She was Taylorsville Elementary’s Teacher of the Year for the 2018-2019 school year.

    Planning is key to achieving balance between content and language objectives. However, what happens when the co-teaching mandate is not clear and the schedule does not allow for shared planning time? How do teachers navigate the curriculum and share instructional time? Let’s explore research-based recommendations and practical solutions. 

    **If you missed this session by Dr. Horne at the 2019 International TESOL PreK-12 Day, you will want to catch this webinar! It is a must for co-teachers! **
