Learn how to support English Language Learners during Emergent Bilingual Week

According to the National Center for Education Statistics, one out of 10 children in U.S. classrooms are emergent bilingual – a student continuing to develop their home language while learning an additional one. Since 2010, the recorded number of emergent bilingual students in the country has increased by more than half a million. In Colorado, emergent bilinguals are referred to as English Language Learners (ELLs) within our school systems. According to our 2021 KIDS COUNT in Colorado! report, 13% of Colorado public school students fall into the category. Lexia Learning is hosting Emergent Bilingual Week to help educators learn how to support the unique learning needs of this student population. 

Join Lexia Learning the week of Oct. 18-22 for a series of webinars, panels, and question-and-answer sessions that explore important aspects of supporting ELL students. These sessions will encompass a range of topics, including how to navigate dynamic and remote learning environments, equity and inclusive design in education technology, the role of oral language in literacy instruction, and much more.  

Sessions will be held from 10-11:30 a.m. (MT) every day of the week. Find the agenda for each session here, and register here. There are less than 200 free tickets remaining!
