Collaborative Conversations: Sharing Strategies for Teaching Beginning English Learners, Session 6: Teaching & Practicing Learning Strategies and Study Skills

Teaching beginning English language learners is rewarding, and not without unique challenges. This series of monthly conversations is an opportunity for teachers of beginning ELs to exchange ideas on practical approaches in a supportive and structured setting. With facilitation by Sarah Lynn, presentations by guest teachers, and open discussions with participants, the sessions invite curiosity and highlight teachers as creative problem solvers. The tone is informal, the exchange professional, and the focus practical.

Trauma-Informed Instruction

Many adult learners have had traumatic experiences that impact their ability to learn. Escaping a war-torn country, surviving abuse, living in poverty, dealing with the daily circumstances of systemic racism, and living through this COVID-19 pandemic are just some examples. This two-hour, online workshop, hosted by the ELA, Math, and ESOL C&I PD Centers, focuses on the effects of trauma on the brain, the impact of trauma on learning, and why an understanding of trauma matters to adult educators. We will also discuss how to notice when a student is experiencing any kind of trauma while teaching remotely, and ways to deal with this as a teacher during remote instruction.
