This bilingual webinar uses an interactive approach to introduce the theoretical and pedagogical foundations of the WIDA Spanish Language Development Framework. Participants will reflect on current practice to determine ways to apply the WIDA Standards and related tools, such as Las definiciones de desempeño, to inform instruction and assessment.
This webinar allows participants to reflect on their learning from any WIDA foundational workshops to consider how they have implemented key ideas from that workshop into their current teaching and learning contexts. Participants will consider the strengths and areas of need for their local teaching and learning context and then use that information to develop an action plan and corresponding professional learning goals. The overall goal is for educators to leverage WIDA tools and resources in the development of their action plans, and reflect on best practices that will, in turn, provide equitable instruction for culturally and linguistically diverse students.
