Advocacy Day: January 26

University of Alabama at Huntsville

Call for Proposals for Advocacy Day will be announced in October

The AMTESOL 2023 theme Mission Critical: Language · Content · Culture focuses our attention on the critical components needed to ensure success for English Learners. Access to content is essential, and support in the development of language in a cultural context is crucial. In the end, we are reflecting on our core mission and how best to achieve that mission in light of competing demands and priorities in today's complex educational context.

As you prepare your proposal, we encourage you to consider the following questions.

  • How can language instruction be situated within content area instruction? 

  • What do teachers need in order to connect language instruction within content lessons?

  • How can we identify and implement particularly robust pedagogical approaches to language instruction within specific content areas? 

  • What are key cultural components that should inform language and content instruction?

  • How can content area teachers and English language teachers collaborate effectively instruction to enhance learning for ELs?

  • How can we determine what is mission critical in supporting ELs? 

Did you miss the October 3rd deadline? AMTESOL will accept late proposals until October 7th.
