DIY PD for Educators of MLs
In our ever-changing world, it is more important now than ever to feel connected as a global community of educators working with multilingual students.
DIY PD: A Guide to Self-Directed Learning for Educators of Multilingual Learners will offer new teachers and veteran edu-bloggers alike a comprehensive array of interpretive, expressive, and interactive activities to support us on our paths and challenge our thinking as we grow together to meet our students’ needs in today's changing education landscape.
This guide is for educators who are seeking innovative ways to chart their own courses for professional learning.
Interpretive, expressive, and interactive professional learning align exactly with the domains of language we diligently work to develop in our multilingual learners.
We can intentionally frame how we nurture and drive our own professional learning around this framework. Our multilingual learners need to listen, speak, read, and write to strengthen their language skills.
Likewise, we have found that professional learning is more authentic and meaningful when we listen, speak, read, and write about our craft. This book provides various opportunities to engage in those four domains as forms of job-embedded professional learning.
