Maine DOE offers summer academy for teachers of English language learners

The Maine DOE is accepting registrations for the 4th Annual ESL Summer Academy to be held June 24-26 at the University of Maine in Orono. Administrators and school teams are encouraged to attend the academy, which will feature interactive sessions on working with the academic language demands in content standards.

Sessions will focus on the particular needs of English learners in the classroom and much time will be devoted to serving English learners in the content classroom. Maine DOE staff will discuss the need to utilize data to inform instruction and guide participants in the development of lesson plans that address both the English Language Development standards and the content standards.

A more detailed description of the academy can be found on the Department’s Training Calendar and you can register online here.
