Collaboratively, attendees will examine factors affecting second-language acquisition as well as cooperative learning activities and strategies supporting ELLs through best practice techniques. Ultimately, participants will not only develop a more comprehensive understanding of aspects influencing ELLs within the classroom but also possess a collection of specific methods designed to meet the diverse educational needs of ELLs.
