Beth partners with English Learner Portal for the following self-paced, asynchronous e-courses.
Please contact Beth or Kelly Reider at English Learner Portal about group rates and special synchronous sessions for groups.
Graduate credit for the following courses is offered through Brandman University.
Developing Reading for Long Term English Learners
Long Term English Learners (LTELs) make up an increasing percentage of all secondary English Learners in the United States.
This 5-hour mini-course provides reading strategies designed to lift LTELs into higher levels of language proficiency and help them access complex, grade level texts. The course is for teachers who work with intermediate level language learners in Grades 4-12.
Differentiating Instruction for CLD Students
This 25-hour course focuses on the rationale and practical strategies for differentiating classroom instruction for culturally and linguistically diverse learners. Throughout the course, participants will explore meaningful ways to integrate language development into their lessons.
The course is self-paced but can be easily completed within four weeks of approximately 5 to 7 hours of work per week. I will provide feedback on activities and assignments. If teachers sign up as a cohort, there is an option to host some of the hours synchronously to increase interaction and personalize the course. Contact English Learner Portal for group rates.
This course earns 25 contact hours toward the Colorado English Learner Educator Professional Development requirement or graduate credit. English Learner Portal is an approved vendor with Colorado Department of Education.
*Note: An additional fee and an additional assignment for 2 graduate credit hours through Brandman University will be due before the end of the course. More details upon enrollment. To receive 2 graduate credits, you will be required to complete a follow-up assignment by the end of the current semester
