ELL Leadership, Advocacy & Collaboration – Middle School Level

As part of my coursework at Georgetown College under Dr. Broady for EDU585, I researched a middle school in central Kentucky and collaborated with teachers to make recommendations for their ELL program. As part of my research, I analyzed the school report card, Comprehensive School Improvement Plan (CSIP), school website, conducted teacher interviews and gave an anonymous survey to get a better idea of the climate and needs of the school. This video shows how I collaborated with the teachers and provided their SBDM council with recommendations for increasing parental involvement, providing teachers with professional development in SIOP (sheltered instruction – an approach to teaching language through content instruction) and promoting a more culturally responsive environment. This class is part of the coursework toward the ESL endorsement at Georgetown.
