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
firstname.lastname@example.org if you would
like your own reflections to be added to the list below.
