Learning from Each Other

"I have also learned that there are different ways to approach a proportion question, and if the student can articulate his reasoning, then we can both learn from each other."

What Do ESOL Instructors Need To Know and Be Able To Do?

Review the Massachusetts Professional Standards for Teachers of Adult ESOL to find out. Then sign up for one of the SABES professional development sessions, which provide teachers with opportunities to investigate the standards and customize their own PD–whether they are novice or experienced practitioners. Look for ESOL courses on our SABES calendar.

Definitely Increased My Understanding

"DESE places such a strong emphasis on the three instructional shifts that I believe they require a special understanding of how to incorporate them into ESOL lessons in the best, most practical ways possible. I'm so grateful to have taken the Recipes course and it has definitely increased my understanding of the three key instructional shifts. … Thank you so much and again, I really got so much out of the course!"
