Shark Tank - ELL
Feb 16 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Did you know that English Language Learners are the fastest growing segment in our nation’s public schools? According to the National Education Association, “By 2025 nearly one out of every four public school students will be an English Language Learner.” Are we prepared to provide differentiated literacy support for these students? In the Shark Tank we will hear from three literacy companies who provide ELL support - Istation, ThinkCerca and LexiaCore5. They will pitch their solutions to our three teacher-sharks. One company will be dubbed the winner. Get ready for a night of smart conversation, hard questions and great solutions to better support all the students in your class.
Istation (also known as Imagination Station) is a comprehensive, award-winning e-learning program that helps over 4 million students in grades Pre-K through 8th in the areas of Reading, Math and Spanish.
Lexia Core 5: Empowering literacy educators through adaptive assessment and personalized instruction.
