Rich Cairn & Glenn Wiebe Secondary (3,4,5) The Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources (TPS) Program is making the best of inquiry-based instruction in social studies and humanities accessible to all learners – including English Learners. Project Director Rich Cairn will guide teachers through effective instructional strategies to support all of your students. The course arose from a decade of work by history and humanities educators, historians, experts in teaching English Learners, and on research and classroom practices that support ALL learners. This course will feature exemplars of best practice based on the history of immigration and foreign language communities in the U.S., using primary sources and analysis tools. It is specifically designed to assist both 5-12 social studies teachers and those working with ELL students to improve the historical thinking skills and content acquisition of English Language learners. Grant funds allow ESSDACK and CES to offer the training at a discount - making this a great cost-effective way for districts to send multiple educators. (Title III funds may be used for this training.) More

ESL, SPED, Low-SES, At-risk Since certain sub-groups of students continue to lag behind their peers in academic achievement, teachers need research-based strategies for bridging the achievement gap. In order to improve postsecondary outcomes for English learners, students with EIP’s, and youth living in low-SES environments, teachers must first understand the underlying factors that contribute to academic achievement then develop strategies for overcoming obstacles to success. Title III funds may be used for this workshop. More
