Center for Educational Partnerships Conducts Citywide Institute

A three-day institute, “Building Language, Content and Standards-Based Instruction for English Language Learners,” conducted under contract with the New York City Department of Education by the Center for Educational Partnerships at GSE, was held on July 5th through 7th at the Fordham Rose Hill campus.  The institute brought over 50 teachers together for professional development geared to meeting the needs of English language learners. Teachers left with new skills and knowledge that will enable them to make content learning more accessible, build academic vocabulary, and develop writing skills using the Common Core State Standards. We are proud to report a 91% satisfaction rate from participants, and comments such as:

“ I have learned so much in the three days about how to modify and cater to the need of ELLs.”

“I hope that there are more of these institutes and learning opportunities to come!”

“…would love to sit under these presenters again—excellent!”

“A very high-quality experience, plenty of useful ideas to apply.”
