May 27, 2010
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM (Eastern)
Latino schooling in the U.S. has long had over-representation in learning disabilities, speech disorders, dropout rates, and low college entrance and completion rates. The problems have moderated over time, but a persistent gap remains for English language learners (ELLs). Over the last few years, the student population at Mid-City High School has changed dramatically. Concerned over students’ lack of progress and high dropout rates among youth with and without disabilities, the staff established a plan for improving instruction for their ELLs. The centerpiece of their plan is a Response to Intervention (RTI) model targeting ELLs’ vocabulary development and reading comprehension. The seminar will discuss challenges faced by the school staff and ways they addressed these challenges.
