TESOL's English Language Proficiency Standards and the Common Core State Standards: Applications and Implications for Effective Instruction of ELLs
Wednesday, 20 February 2013, 10:30 am–12:00 pm ET
Registration Deadline: 15 February 2013
Presenters: Judy O’Loughlin and Lynore Carnuccio
Audience: K–12 teachers (mainstream and ESOL)
The Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are recognized as an over-arching guide for U.S. language arts and mathematics curricula. These standards indicate that academic success must be exhibited in various language domains; however, they do not address the specific instructional needs of diverse groups such as ELLs in the schools. The TESOL Prek-12 English Language Proficiency Standards (2006) provide the necessary framework that, when blended with CCSS, will delineate instruction targeting academic content while guiding the academic language to appropriately address students’ level of language proficiency.

The Keys to Success in Teaching English to Young Learners
24 April 2013, 10:30 am–12:00 pm ET
Registration Deadline: 19 April 2013
Presenter: Joan Kang Shin
Audience: EFL teachers, teacher trainers, and administrators of ELT programs for young learners
English education is increasingly beginning at the primary level, but starting earlier does not necessarily produce better English speakers. This virtual seminar shows how EFL teachers can take advantage of the flexibility of young minds and the malleability of young tongues to grow better speakers of English. The presenter will explain the keys to success for teaching young learners English as an international language that includes taking a developmentally appropriate approach and building 21st century skills to prepare children for the world they live in.
