A Day in the Life of an English Language Learner

with Maria Ortiz-Smith

February 21, 2019
8:30 am - 2:30 pm
at the Southwest Plains Conference Center
810 W. Lark Avenue, Sublette

School systems in Kansas are committed to meeting the needs of English Learners and their families.  Let us help you optimize your efforts and enhance practice by adding to your knowledge of strategies.  Experience the effectiveness of these strategies by assuming the role of an EL student as you make sense of a lesson taught in another language.  You will also navigate the school system as a family whose native language is not English to help your journey towards authentic family engagement.  The English Learner Simulation will extend your knowledge and give you the 'how' to enact your passion for ALL learners.


To examine the beliefs and values that guide their professional practice, participants will assume the roles of an EL student as they attempt to make meaning from a lesson taught in a different language. They will also navigate the school system as a family whose native language is not the language of the school.

Who should attend: 
Any faculty/staff member who interacts with English Language Learners.
