What Works in Connecticut

While delivering our PD workshops in the last six years, many educators have posed questions about what and how similar districts educate their English learners.   How do they educate their newcomers?  What do they use for assessment tools to accurately measure growth in the ELs?  How do they design secondary bilingual programs?  All great questions.  In our experience, we've seen and heard some really great things happening around our state and wanted to create a means to share these stories.  What Works in Connecticut was born, with the idea to disseminate success stories of effectively educating our ELs throughout the state and beyond.   

What Works in Connecticut is a compilation of vignettes detailing successes in all areas of education with regard to ELs (assessment, parental involvement, instructional strategies, etc.) and will be published annually.
