Our New Workshop!
#6 ELD Models and Strategies for Co-Teaching 
- Push-in and Pull-out!
With inclusion on the rise, ELD and Classroom teachers are sharing classrooms more than ever and becoming effective co-teaching partners. Bring your team, co-teacher or just yourself and learn the models for co-teaching.  Understand when and how to use each model for effective instruction to second language learners and low language at risk students.  Find out which strategies are best associated with each model and create make and take activities so you can use them in the classroom the next day!  Engaging, robust English acquisition happens throughout the day when ELD and Classroom teachers team up to enrich each lesson with rigorous language instruction.
