English Learner Leadership (ELL) Working Group

In the past year, BAWP has seen an overall increase in requests for PD contracts. Many of those requests focus on serving the needs of English Learners. With these increased requests comes a need

The English Learner Leadership (ELL) Working Group–formerly the English Learner Inquiry Group, is looking for BAWP TCs who work with English Learners to help develop research and practice-based professional learning experiences which integrate the ELD standards/framework with Common Core State Standards.

The group will  meet monthly (except December) on 3rd Wednesdays from 4:30 – 6:30 pm:

  • September 21st
  • October 19th
  • November 16th
  • January 18th
  • February 15th
  • March 15th
  • April 19th
  • May 17th

These meetings will be a space for planning and development of research, practice and standards-based PDs (or mini-demos), with ample opportunity to  share, learn from, rehearse and troubleshoot with colIeagues. If interested, please fill out the following form as soon as possible and no later than August 29th.

We are especially looking for TCs who apply in cross-content  (e.g.: ELA/Science) or cross-grade (Elementary/Middle, Middle/High, or High/Post-Secondary) pairs to work together on a project during this coming school year.
