Now, more than ever, multilingual learners need leaders in their school that understand their strengths and needs. If you still love working with language learners, SWEL is your chance to find joy in your work again.
Supporting ELs is everyone's responsibility. Become a School-Wide English Learning (SWEL) coach.
Language teachers are often asked to lead workshops and support their colleagues’ instruction, but they rarely have access to the training needed to accomplish this work efficiently, effectively, and with confidence. The Teacher Leadership for School-Wide English Learning (SWEL) workshop series prepares language teachers to share their expertise with colleagues through collaborative discussions and observations. It is a systematic framework that recognizes teacher professional learning is most effective when it is in-house.
