University of New Orleans, New Orleans, LA
After the wildly popular Dream Day that we ran in 2015, we thought we would bring back a scaled down version. Come learn how to teach your English Language Learners (ELLs) in your classroom! This day is geared towards K-12 teachers who have ELLs in their classroom but aren’t quite sure if they are getting through. Registration includes lunch. We are working on getting approval to offer professional development credits–check back soon!
- Sessions will include:
- Scaffolded learning for content area teachers
- Teaching history and social studies to ELLs using authentic materials
- ELL rights in the classroom and in school
- Down and dirty linguistics for Arabic, Vietnamese, and Spanish
Parking on UNO’s campus:
Parking will be available for $3 in the pay-to-park lot located directly next to the University Center (building 34 on this map). Please note that parking in regular UNO parking lots without a permit can result in a hefty ticket that we cannot do anything to resolve. Parking is also available for free along Elysian Fields Avenue and Leon C. Simon Blvd.
