EL Education Classrooms in Practice: Middle School
EL Education Institute
- City Milwaukee, WI
Network School Partners
Five-day institutes are designed to be a powerful introduction to EL Education’s Core Practices for educators new to our whole school model. In each institute, participants engage as “students” in a slice of a content- and literacy-rich learning expedition. They experience the practices that characterize high-achieving, engaging classrooms throughout our school network. The practices focus on developing a strong classroom culture, engaging students in daily assessment, and using effective instructional practices (e.g., building background knowledge, strategies for helping students read closely, vocabulary work, numeracy, fieldwork, using experts, and scaffolding to create high-quality work).
The Middle School Institute also include a Crew/Advisory component focused on building community and character.
