Members of the EL Department attended the 2-day Special Populations Conference organized by the Michigan Department of Education’s Office of Field Services. Field Services’ primary goal is to support schools in helping all students learn and achieve high standards. Kellie Bugaski, Ameena Elder and Nadra Shami shared their expertise by facilitating sessions at the conference. The workshop sessions included: Specially Designed Instruction for Newcomers, Building Bridges to Support Diverse Learners, and Oral Language & Writing Strategies for ELs. The sessions were very well received. The team also brought back some great learning!
