This year’s 2016 Iowa Culture and Language Conference was a huge success! Much of this success was due to the wonderful presenters who were eager to share their expertise. One such presenter and keynote speaker at the conference was John Seidlitz. Mr. Seidlitz is an independent educational consultant and the author of Sheltered Instruction Plus: A Guide for Texas Teachers of English Learners; Navigating the ELPS: Using the New Standards to Improve Instruction for English Learners; and a contributing author for The SIOP® Model for Teaching History-Social Studies for English Learners.
One of his sessions was titled, “ELLs: What Administrators Need to Know." This session focused on TEAM. This acronym stands for Training/Certification, Expectation of High Quality LIEP, Allocation of Resources and Monitoring & Adjusting Program.
