Accessing Inquiry for English Learners through Primary Sources will be offered at the Collaborative for Educational Services (CES) in Northampton, Massachusetts in a two-session format, meeting Thursdays a month apart, October 19 and November 16.
Multilingual learners can benefit from primary source activities, and all students can find compelling questions in the history of immigrants in the US. Our graduate-level 15-hour course, for PDPs or Westfield State University credit for an additional fee, will offer hands-on activities and a chance to customize learning to topics and a ready-to-use takeaway relevant to each participants’ own situation.
Jacqueline LaFrance, an ELL classroom teacher who has been modifying instruction to meet the needs of diverse learners for over a decade, will work with English Learner Collaborations project lead Alison Noyes to guide professional learning.
We are excited about bringing educators together in the newly renovated CES learning space in beautiful Northampton, Massachusetts. We will have access to a variety of informal meeting spaces for project work time, including an outdoor patio (boxed lunches will be provided). Most important, we are looking forward to being together in person.
Thanks to generous support from the Teaching with Primary Sources (TPS) Eastern Region program, managed by Waynesburg University, a course normally costing $350 per participant is $100 per participant ($85 for educators from CES member districts).
