Austin Independent School District in Texas has achieved national recognition for attaining the one of the highest graduation rates in Texas and across the country for Latino and ELL students. A key driver of the district’s success is its literacy plan that emphasizes reading throughout, inside and beyond the school day.
In this edWebinar, Ilza Garcia, Language Arts Administrative Supervisor; Claudia Santamaria, Assistant Director for Elementary ELLs; and Dr. Harishini Ernest, Secondary ELL Coordinator, will share how their district’s plan engages teachers, students, families and community partners in a balanced literacy model that incorporates:
- Research-based practices for biliteracy and multilingual support
- ELL support
- Social and emotional learning embedded strategies
- Active reading and connected writing practice
