BAP114 Literacy for Older Newcomers, What is Practical and Effective
How can foundational literacy skills be taught to older Emergent Bilingual students?

I have lots of resources and practical ideas for you! Full Show Notes are at bit.ly/BAP114
I love listening to this playlist anytime I feel defeated. It gives me so many ideas to try and share with my colleagues.
I love this podcast when you get those episodes that offer serious teaching tips and information. Unfortunately, it is sometimes just a looooong commercial for someone trying to sell a book, or a bunch of people fan-girling over one another.
I love this podcast
Brand new to the ELL world (as a literacy tutor) and I am learning SO much from Carol Salva.
