We are excited to engage with advocates for English Learners at the 3rd annual Effective Border Schools Conference in South Padre Island, Texas on Tuesday, May 22 from 3pm to 4:15 pm in room 103. English learners use complex reasoning, advanced decoding skills, and navigate nuance every day. Yet, the assets these students bring to school often go unrecognized, as many educators view limited English proficiency as a barrier to rigorous critical thinking instruction. This is simply not true. English Learners have blossomed when challenged with thinkLaw’s unique approach.
To learn more about our unique, game-changing approach to critical thinking instruction you’re invited to attend Colin Seale’s presentation; Pensamiento Critico: Using Language as an Asset to 21st Century Skills. This session provides practical tools educators can use to encourage the development of authentic academic language while delivering the 21st century instruction all students need.
Spaces are limited so please add this presentation to your schedule now by clicking here. Colin Seale will also be available at booth #110 in the exhibit hall to answer any questions you might have or to chat about how to partner with thinkLaw to unleash the critical thinking potential of your school or district’s English Learners, click here to schedule a meeting.
