With the rapid transfer to an entirely new instruction model, many K-12 teachers nationwide have been facing multiple challenges finding the right strategies and approaches to deliver content while maintaining rigor and equity in their instruction. Moving to the online format has been especially challenging for those who support and serve multilingual learners. Teachers are grappling with providing effective differentiation and scaffolding, ensuring equal student participation, facilitating group work, and other pedagogical tasks. Still, it has also opened up a wide window of opportunities as well as offered new perspectives on the possible future trends in public education.

Now, it is time we harness our newly developed expertise and skills, come together, and share what we have learned throughout this unusual period for the K-12 system. We invite you to join us on Saturday, February 20th, 2021, to offer your successful strategies and tactics in teaching the English Language/multilingual Learners online and explore promising virtual instruction approaches in a language-learning context. The participants will share their experiences in adapting instruction to meet students’ needs in an online setting and reimagining their pedagogical practices to satisfy the requirements of the current learning environment.
