Harvard to Host Panel on ELLs

If you live in the Boston area, you might want to attend a forum, "Building Capacity to Serve English-Language Learners in U.S. Schools," on April 21. The rest of us can watch a video of the event, which is expected to be posted after that date on the Web site of The Achievement Gap Initiative at Harvard University. The forum is scheduled from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. and will have four panelists, including Paul Reville, the Massachusetts secretary of education and a senior lecturer on education for Harvard's Graduate School of Education, and Nonie K. Lesaux, an associate professor in human development and urban education advancement, also at the graduate school. (For more details, scroll down to the third item here.)

The promotional text for the panel says: "English-language learners are well represented in many U.S. classrooms, but poorly served when teachers are not well prepared to meet their needs."
