Confianza’s Success for Multilingual Learners Program is designed to build and enhance capacity for EL teachers and content teachers and teams. Using our language lens approach, we support teachers who work with Multilingual Learners -- English Language Learners (ELLs) and Academic Language Learners (ALLs).
Our Plan-Teach-Assess professional learning skills are taught direct-to-educator through online courses or through a blended Professional Learning Partnership direct-to-school-or-district through a series of workshop and coaching cycles.
Educators take part in guided support using Confianza’s practical research-based articles, videos and Fieldwork Protocols for immediate transfer to practice.
The series is available as a badge/micro-credential/endorsement for a school or district or graduate credit hours. In Massachusetts, we are a state-approved vendor to issue 15 RETELL SEI PDPs to successful participants.
