Conference Follow-Up - Ongoing Professional Development

As follow-up to the 2010 Montana ESOL Conference, participants were asked to read and reflect upon one of five selected readings from Jill Bell’s Teaching Multilevel Classes in ESL. Each of the selected readings corresponds to one of our five conference strands. Participants were also asked to discuss their reflections with a colleague who had chosen a different reading.

The responses to these professional development “assignments” were both enthusiastic and thoughtful. They are listed below for each of the selected readings. Check them out, compare your colleagues’ reflections to your own, or read one of the selections for yourself!  Email if you would like your own reflections to be added to the list below.
