National ESEA Conference


QTEL's Dr. Aída Walqui will be presenting at the National ESEA Conference which will be held on February 4-7, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia.

Session: Providing English Learners and Other Students Deep and Generative Opportunities to Learn

Date: Tuesday February 4, 2020

Time: 12:30 – 1:30 PM

Location: Room 311/312

This presentation makes the case that rigorous and deep learning occurs when students are invited to engage in activity that is intellectually honest and that challenges and supports them. Dr. Walqui will present five principles that define quality instruction in classrooms where students who are English learners study alongside native speakers of English. Participants will understand and recognize how these principles are applied to instruction that simultaneously develops students’ conceptual, analytic, and language practices deeply.

Time: 2:00 –3:00 p.m.,
