Great resources you can add to PDs you are giving.
Supporting Immigrants in Schools Video Series
A four-part video series that provides information and illustrates successful practices in order to support educators in creating safe and welcoming environments for immigrant students and families. Great to use when offering PD. Comes with step-by-step guide for each video.

Betsy Markman slides: This is a FANTASTIC presentation that includes so many examples, photos and links. The amazing Betsy Markman created a slide presentation to help regular education classroom teachers with ELs in their classes. If you are doing PD for reg. ed., start here. Definitely my favorite resource on this topic!
Valentina Gonzales Infographics: Why I like them- "Short and sweet and hard to beat!" Friendly, brightly colored, and a quick read. Great for teacher training, new teacher orientation, or newsletters. I leave copies in my substitute notes too. https://elementaryenglishlanguagelearners.weebly.com/infographics.html @ValentinaESL
Tan Huynh's "Bathroom Brief's": In Tan's words- "All educators are teachers of language, but not every educator has time to learn the strategies to teach language. That’s the purpose of Bathroom Briefs (BB). Each Monday, I physically post a new BB in the faculty bathroom. They offer a quick, easily accessible strategy that can be used cross-content."
You are free to use these, modify them, translate them as needed. Please just reference that you got them from his site. He’d love to see how you use them and share them on Twitter, so please tag him. (@TanELLclassom)
Jody Nolf's videos: Jody is a passionate educator who's always searching for lessons, strategies, and support from and for fellow #ELLWarriors. However, she realized early on that there were limited resources for secondary content and ESOL teachers. Search after search brought her to ESOL resources that were GREAT--just not suitable to her secondary teachers' needs. So she created these videos and resources to share with all her teachers. Lucky for us, she posts them on her site so others can use them too. @JodyNolf
