Help participants use assessments that promote bilingual proficiency and educational equity for English language learners!

Designed around the best-selling book Assessing English Language Learners, this comprehensive multimedia presentation offers staff developers the necessary materials to show how teachers can equitably assess the language proficiency and academic achievement of English language learners (ELLs). Facilitators and participants will examine an assessment framework for ELLs, discuss the author's proposed fair grading practices, and learn how those practices translate into a standards-based report card. Workshop content includes:

  • Assessing ELLs in the language domains of listening, speaking, reading, and writing
  • Differentiating instruction and assessment in math, science, and social studies
  • Evaluating the effectiveness of rubrics for ELLs
  • Reviewing grading policies and their implications for ELLs
  • Applying standards-based performance measures that complement standardized tools for ELLs
  • Delivering classroom assessments along with sample projects

Offering practical strategies for implementing assessments, Assessing English Language Learners: A Multimedia Kit for Professional Development includes:

  • The companion book, Assessing English Language Learners, covering the key elements of using fair and effective assessment methods
  • A 47-minute, content-rich VHS video that features Margo Gottlieb discussing critical issues for approaching assessments and master teachers demonstrating ways of assessing ELLs
  • A companion DVD with a navigation menu for easy stop-and-search control of the video content
  • A CD-ROM with PowerPoint slides that summarize the key points in each chapter
  • A step-by-step facilitator's guide that connects the book's core content to the video/DVD and includes segment prompts, workshop outlines, extended workshop activities, key points, and discussion questions

This all-in-one package is indispensable for staff developers or anyone leading professional development to increase educators' understanding and skills for assessing English language learners.
