Monterey County Office of Education Supports Accelerating Academic Language and Achievement for Long-Term English Learners

 Salinas, Calif. – Over 190 participants throughout Monterey County including educational leaders, teachers, and support staff will learn evidence-based English Language Development instructional practices over a four day institute that begins Wednesday, October 5 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., at CSUMB’s Salinas City Center located at 1 Main Street in Salinas.

Participants will learn from experts Dr. Kate Kinsella and Theresa Hancock ways to provide support for upper-elementary students at risk of becoming long-term English learners by accelerating their language and literacy development and improving lesson planning, observations, and coaching focused on language development. 

Dr. Kate Kinsella is a teacher educator at San Francisco State University and a highly-sought after speaker and consultant to school districts throughout the United States regarding development of academic language and literacy across the

K–12 subject areas. Her career focus has been equipping children from diverse backgrounds with the communication, reading, and writing skills to be career and college ready. Dr. Kinsella remains active in K–12 classrooms by providing in-class coaching and lesson demonstrations to assist teachers and administrators in understanding how to engage every student in competent language use.

Follow-up to this event by educational experts from the Monterey County Office of Education will provide a variety of support including professional learning opportunities, customized programs, and continuing efforts focused on paving the pathway for lifelong success of students.
