Do you work with low-level ELLs (with CASAS scores of roughly 180-195)? Do you sometimes struggle with integrating content standards, like ACES/TIF, into your lesson plans? Do you wonder how to deliver rigorous content without overwhelming your learners?

Tune in to the
ACES webinar on April 23 from 2:00-3:30 pm, and hear from teachers who intentionally integrate ACES/TIF in their low-level ELL classes on a regular basis. Find out how to choose ACES skills to focus on when planning a lesson, and design activities that are appropriately challenging.
