 This in-depth training is geared towards middle and secondary content teachers, special education teachers, and interventionists as they strive to meet the needs of English learner students.  It provides participants with valuable information to help them understand English learner students and practical applications of strategies to support growth in both English language and in content area subjects.

·       multiple options for completing the sessions,

·       a sample agenda with estimated times for sessions and links to the videos, and
