Measuring Success: Defining Quality Education for Multilingual Students
Emergent Bilingual students need different academic supports and structures than their monolingual peers. Many educators have to rely on instructional models designed for students who already speak English—leading to a disconnect for ELLs.
Ensuring all Emergent Bilingual and multilingual students have access to a quality education first requires defining what that education looks like. In this session, viewers gain understanding of the value oral discourse brings to literacy learning, how to implement effective instructional practices across districts, schools, and classrooms, and helpful answers to audience questions. This Emergent Bilingual Week panel, moderated by Cassandra Wheeler, director of Lexia LETRS® State Success, includes:
- Dr. Linda Cavazos, executive director, ELLAS Consulting (English Learner Leadership Advocacy Support)
- Martha Hernandez, executive director, Californians Together
- Dr. José Viana, senior education advisor, Lexia
- Breanna Guzman, senior language product specialist, Lexia
