Gini Rojas works with ELC teachers and students on language learning

The ELC teachers were fortunate to work with Gini Rojas, an international language consultant, on March 17. Gini has been working with the ELC teachers for the past two years. While at the ELC,  Gini co-taught a lesson in both Pre-K and Kindergarten classrooms to model using expanded discourse in directed classroom activities. Teachers then engaged in curriculum planning with Gini, taking content standards and adding language targets to lesson planning. ELC teachers plan to assess language in all ELL (English language learners) using specific language targets for each unit taught during the school year.  (Jean Caskey, ELC Director)
