the world of English? Participants will be immersed in the
world of second language learning as they experience the
complexity of academic demands through instructional
activities that involve listening, speaking, reading, and
writing. Various sections of this workshop will be conducted
in Spanish as a means for English-dominant teachers to

Elementary Writing for the ELL (PreK-5)

help educators understand these processes of writing
development as ELLs transition from one language level of
proficiency to the next to ultimately reach TELPAS Advanced
High level in writing. Different genres will be addressed
during the training as well as strategies and ideas for
practical classroom implementation.
