Minnesota and Wisconsin Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages
This paper examines the growing need to rethink the ways in which professional
development is provided for those who teach English language learners. It documents
the two-year experience of a team of seven elementary school educators (mainstream,
ESL, speech clinician, paraprofessional) who participated in a newly designed
professional development project to provide best practices for these learners in their
school. Resulting comments by these educators reflect increased personal growth,
professional success, and a renewed commitment to a more collaborative approach to
professional development that is long-term, site-based, and student-focused.
