QTEL e-SERIES: A PEDAGOGY OF PROMISE, ELEMENTARY LITERACY*
Elementary educators of English Learners including teachers, teacher leaders and instructional coaches.
You will work with colleagues to understand theoretically-grounded, evidence-based, practical approaches to Elementary Literacy Instruction for English Learners. Each session is designed to bring together individual or small-group reading and discussion together with live, whole-group video sessions that demonstrate powerful learning designs.
During the course, participants will learn how to design academically rigorous learning experiences for our English Learners, while offering them the supports to simultaneously develop language and disciplinary practices.

Module 2: Pedagogical Scaffolding for English Learners in Elementary Literacy
Module 3: QTEL’s Three Part Lesson Architecture for English Learners in Elementary Literacy
Module 4: Designing and Implementing Powerful Learning Opportunities for English Learners in Elementary Literacy
All modules center on a live session with ample opportunities for educators to read, reflect, and apply in depth in pre- and post- asynchronous sessions:
Preparation: Participants will read theoretical background information, analyze video, and participate in online discussions about major themes explored in each module.
Live Video Session: Participants will experience synchronous activities as if they were students to analyze the conditions under which English Learners can participate in powerful learning experiences that support their development.
Analysis, application, and reflection: Participants will engage in deep analysis of ideas, tasks, and pedagogical moves found in the exemplar lesson from the live session. They will also develop applications to their classroom practice.
