New York State Education Department and the Brooklyn/Queens BETAC at Long Island University present
New! NYSED Guidelines for Educating Limited English Proficient Students with Interrupted Formal Education (LEP/ELL SIFES).
Presenter: Ellie Paiewonsky
Date: Thursday, June 2, 2011
Time: 8:30 A.M—12:30 P.M.
Location: Long Island University, Brooklyn Campus
Audience: This workshop is intended for teachers, supervisors and educators of English language Learners K-12.
The Guidelines serve to shape the design and implementation of ESL and Bilingual Education programs for LEP/ELL/SIFEs aligned to CR Part 154. This document addresses key variables such as timely and accurate identification, reflective and evidence-based placement, design of programmatic options, and research on best instructional practices. It also includes references which have been used to conceptualize these guidelines. It endeavors to describe policies and practices which address the socio-academic, emotional, and cultural needs of SIFEs.
The presenter will address key features in the document and how they impact the education of SIFEs. Participants will learn about instructional/programmatic guidelines, strategies and activities to meet the needs of this population, which because of interrupted or no education in their native countries, are at the greatest risk of not achieving promotional and graduation benchmarks.
