Working with ELL/ESL Students

CUNY classrooms frequently feature students with a variety of language backgrounds. This workshop explores the ways in which that diversity can be an asset to a classroom and will offer tools for highlighting these varied perspectives and experiences. We will also discuss specific strategies to encourage ELL students to participate in course discussions as well as tips for assessing ELL student work.

Working with ELL/ESL Students was offered in the Spring 2016 as an in-person workshop at the Graduate Center, CUNY. The workshop and materials were developed by Avra Spector.
