As a teacher

This step-by-step guide targets the needs of all teachers working with English language learners/bilingual learners. The highly embedded apprenticeship model offers teachers clear guidance, classroom examples and strategies, a linguistically and culturally responsive unit and lesson planning framework, and an observation protocol to monitor and evaluate changes. From the needs assessment at the start of the program through the review and reflection as the professional development is implemented, teachers are guided along a continuum of professional learning that prepares them to better serve their culturally and linguistically diverse learners.
