● 4:30 - 5:00 p.m. - Snacks, beverages, and reconnect with other ESL practitioners
● 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. - Teaching with Settlement in Mind
How can settlement and integration be facilitated in a holistically supported ESL literacy program? Basic life skills and survival challenges such as housing, medical and finances create learning barriers. In this workshop, participants will learn about settlement issues common to newcomers and discuss ways to address them in their teaching.
