Session Abstract

This highly interactive workshop will focus on helping ELs with writing. We have adapted the ACES model for constructed responses to support ELs of various WIDA ELD levels.  Our goal is the gradual release of teacher responsibility.  Aligned with CCSS, we will share teaching strategies and samples of student work.
