The English Forward Instructor Training is only one of the many opportunities at your disposal to receive high quality professional development in teaching ESL. As you know, under the “Webinars” tab on the menu above, we have two great webinars available for you to complete on “Integrating Health Literacy Into the ESL Classroom” and “Adapting English Forward to One-to-One Settings”. Additionally, LINCS (the Literacy Information and Communication System) has a Learning Portal with several good resources available on teaching ESL and a variety of other topics. The Learning Portal requires you to have an account, but signing up for an account is totally free. Click here to learn more about the LINCS Learning Portal and sign up.
Beyond these resources, you likely have opportunities for professional development provided by state and local adult education providers. Spend some time researching other opportunities in your community to keep learning!
