Details on the Language Series:

This special event supports educators in understanding the critical role that language plays in the social and academic success of all students. Come and re-energize your practice by learning from experts in the field. They will share multiple ways to promote and support social and academic language growth in today's diverse educational settings that may include multilingual learners as well as students who have difficulties acquiring or developing language. 

Connections to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) will be made throughout the conference, keeping in mind that CCSS places all four language skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking, squarely at the center, as the motor that drives curriculum and instruction for social and academic development. 

A panel of leaders and researchers, a keynote presentation, as well as workshops with experienced practitioners will inspire and engage you through hands-on activities and specific examples. As a participant, you will take away concrete ideas for immediate implementation in your settings.
