MTA Summer Conference
July 31-August 4 at UMass-Amherst
Programs on all aspects of organizational and leadership development are offered along with specific tracks for:
English Language Learners
One of our own BREA members, Grainne Coen will be presenting a 2-day professional development at the summer conference. The workshop is titled “Getting to Know your ELLs: Strategies to Help You Help Them Succeed”
This course is geared for teachers who will be teaching English Language Learners in 2016-2017. This is an opportunity to review their WIDA scores and explore the curriculum that they will be teaching, so that they may come up with language acquisition strategies that will help their ELLs grasp the content material successfully. Teachers will be asked to bring in lessons and curriculum materials that they can work on in class in order to begin tiering content for their incoming ELLs. Participants are eligible to earn 15 PDPs in the category of English Language Learners upon the completion of a reflective paper about the implementation of a curricular unit created with the strategies learned in this course.

Our local MTA office has moved. It is no longer at the Wynn and Wynn building on Route 44 in Raynham. It has moved to the 3rd floor of the Bridgewater Savings Bank on Route 44 (a little bit further down from its former location) across from the Raynham water tower and near Stoneforge and Wal-Mart.
