2017 Fall Conference Theme: Supporting Diverse Learners in ESOL
As educators who work within such diverse educational contexts, it becomes our responsibility to serve all students while ensuring no students get left behind. The 2017 Fall Conference will delve into issues regarding our diverse learners by prompting discussions and panels relating to ABSE, students with disabilities, LGBQT students, and other learners we encounter in all grade levels. Such topics will challenge our current means of teaching inside the classroom, while providing opportunities to expand our perspectives outside the classroom. Our Fall Conference theme “Supporting Diverse Learners in ESOL” allows us to engage with the content to benefit our students while supporting all student identities.
