As a director/professional development provider

This text is a practical implementation guide that brings educators from different departments together. The 12 Key Practices Framework and Checklist provide a common language and practice for English language learner (ELL)-focused professional learning communities as they plan, implement, monitor, evaluate, and improve the ELL services and professional development they provide. The 12 Key Practices Framework is divided into four parts:

    1. Shared practices at the district, school, and classroom levels
    2. Common classroom practices for all ELL educators
    3. Core instructional practices of every program for ELLs
    4. Organizing the key practices into effective program configurations
