Join us on May 8–9, 2023, in the nation’s capital for the first in a series of new annual conferences jointly hosted by two federally-funded research centers created to study how to improve education for English Learners and produce actionable findings.
The Center for the Success of English Learners and the National Research and Development Center to Improve Education for Secondary English Learners—funded by the Institute of Education Sciences—invite you to attend “Improving Instruction, Assessment, and Policies for Secondary English Learners Across the Content Areas.”
The joint conference at George Washington University is intended for teacher educators, teachers, district and state English Learner program administrators, and others playing critical roles in the field, including policymakers and researchers.
- Mark Schneider, Institute of Education Sciences
- Kenji Hakuta, Stanford University
- Guillermo Solano-Flores, Stanford University
- Amanda Kibler, Oregon State University
- Jennifer O’Day, American Institutes for Research
Dean Michael Feuer of George Washington University will make opening remarks.
The conference is an opportunity to:
- Learn how teacher education, curriculum, instruction, assessment, course taking, and policies can be dramatically improved so that secondary English Learners succeed in all content areas.
- Hear directly from leading researchers and experts in the field.
- Network across research, policy, and instructional roles to share best practices.
- Make a difference in the learning and the lives of children who need support to learn subject matter content and practices simultaneously and the English necessary to communicate them.
The joint conference will nurture critically needed awareness of research-based findings and the tools and processes available to ensure that English Learners are offered quality opportunities to learn and realize their potential.
