Announcements from WITESOL:

Lunch and Learn – ML Workshop – Fort Atkinson

WITESOL sponsored a Lunch and Learn workshop for ML educators in partnership with the School District of Fort Atkinson’s ML Department. During the workshop, educators shared resources, collaborated about effective strategies for working with multilingual learners, and brainstormed solutions on how to best support students who are learning English. This year’s workshop brought together 27 educators from several districts and organizations including Arcadia, CESA 2, Fort Atkinson, Jefferson, Lake Mills, Milton, Stoughton, Watertown, and Whitewater. Everyone left the workshop feeling empowered to help their multilingual learners by using the new strategies and resources gathered during the workshop. It was a delightful day of networking!
