    Dr. Cárdenas-Hagan, a nationally recognized expert in designing reading interventions for bilingual students, will share insights on the intersection of structured literacy with best practices for multilingual learners.

    Webinar 1: Structured Literacy for English Learners

    There are 5 million English learners attending public schools in the U.S.

    The majority of the students speak Spanish as their first language.

    Every professional must understand how to differentiate instruction to help these students achieve second language and literacy skills that are commensurate with their monolingual English-speaking peers.  This session will describe Structured Literacy and the specific cross-linguistic features that can be aligned with foundational skills of reading.  Lesson designs will be modeled and features of Spanish and English and other languages will also be provided.

    Webinar 2: Multitiered System of Supports: Essential Considerations for Implementation Among English Learners

    Description: The number of students in the United States who are learning English as their second or third language
    has increased significantly. Additionally, Multitiered System of Supports (MTSS) have been
    recommended as a framework to ensure high-quality and differentiated instruction, with screening and
    progress monitoring to address and potentially prevent learning difficulties. This session will explore the
    key considerations for implementation of MTSS among English learners. Specifically, language of
    instruction models, oral language proficiency and differentiated literacy instruction. A rubric for
    implementation will also be described and shared with participants.
