Registration is open for the Understanding Language Professional Learning Workshop, which consist of a workshop Sept. 20-21 and a follow-up session Nov. 15-16, both at Western Kentucky University’s Knicely Conference Center in Bowling Green.

The workshop is for English learner (EL) teachers and upper elementary, middle school or high school general education teachers who provide services to ELs in the general classroom.

Participants will engage in upper elementary and middle school exemplars that scaffold the reading of complex texts for ELs. The strategies and understandings found in the exemplars foster conceptual development and linguistic growth for ELs. The professional development will provide participants with new activities and approaches to better write their own curriculum materials.
