Collaboration and Co-Teaching Conference
Wednesday, October 10 - Thursday, October 11

A collaborative whole-school approach to educating linguistically and culturally diverse students has proven to be the optimum program model. Learn how co-teaching and collaboration between EL and mainstream teachers combines their expertise to boost student achievement every lesson every day. Join fellow Missouri educators and administrators as we explore best practices, gain strategies for maximizing student assets and share tips for increasing EL parent engagement.
Two keynote speakers and more than 15 strategy‐packed sessions led by experienced ESOL program directors, regional co‐teachers and trainers will enable you to mix and match your learning experience.
