2-Hour Webinar that took place on January 11, 2018.

Illinois policy reflects the growing body of research indicating that our youngest English learners (ELs) benefit from language programming in preschool and pre-kindergarten.  Working with ELs before kindergarten presents educators with unique opportunities in meeting the needs of our youngest ELs.  The session will also explore the current state of policy in practice, how schools and districts are meeting the mandates, and challenges and obstacles to meeting the policy requirements.
