In Virginia, there's a strong priority on helping English Language Learners (ELLs) develop academic language. To do this, we know that effective instruction for ELLs requires both content and language instruction. However, crafting effective language objectives for ELLs may require some support. ESOL educators are asking a variety of questions, including:

Who can I learn from and are there best practices?
ESOL teacher Allison Balter and Ellevation Education CEO explore effective practices, tips and takeaways, teacher success stories, and a model for crafting language objectives, including:
