DescriptionESUs 3, 4, 6 and 7 are excited to present a collaborative professional learning opportunity. This session offers ELA and EL/ML teachers an insight into the unique needs of multilingual writers and provides practical strategies to address these needs. The session is designed to offer teachers a variety of techniques to enhance their writing instruction for newcomer and long-term language learners. During the session, the participants will sample activities for the sentence and paragraph level instruction and participate in simulated mini-lessons.

Our presenter for the conference, Natalia Heckman, trained as a translator in English and French before finding her calling in education. She has served as an ELA coach and an ESL/Bilingual program specialist prior to joining Seidlitz Education as a highly regarded presenter. Click here for more information about Natalia Heckman.
