Getting Started in ESL: Intake Strategies (with Ray Campbell)

This interactive session is designed to introduce you to promising practices in welcoming new ESL students and families to their school and classroom. It will benefit those teachers who are in a jurisdiction or location where readily accessible central supports are either limited or do not exist. It is also designed to assist those who have limited training or experience in responding to the needs of newly arriving students and families needing English as a Second Language support.
