Thursday & Friday, October 1 & 2, 2015
 
Target Audience: Administrators, program directors, ELL and classroom educators of upper elementary and above, and school counselors in districts and adult and community programs serving students with limited or interrupted formal education.
 
*Students with Limited or Interrupted Formal Education (SLIFE) are English language learners who have experienced interrupted education due to war, civil unrest, migration, or other factors; who have never had the opportunity to participate in any type of schooling before entering school in the United States; or who have experienced limited education in their home countries due to lack of resources or trained teachers, the type of schooling they participated in, or other circumstances. (DeCapua & Marshall, 2010)
 
Through the lens of culturally responsive teaching, we will examine the world of Students with Limited or Interrupted Formal Education (SLIFE) and develop the knowledge and skills essential to successful instruction for this at-risk population. The institute provides a theoretical framework, instructional guidelines, classroom activities, and assessment rubrics.
