“Swap Shop” Workshop – Share Teaching Techniques

Have you ever attended a professional conference and felt like the most beneficial part was networking with your colleagues over lunch and sharing ideas and strategies? WITESOL is sponsoring a free “Swap Shop” event at Northcentral Technical College in Wausau on Friday, May 20th for educators who work with multilingual learners. This will be an opportunity to meet and learn from your peers in the EL field. Each participant should come prepared to share a teaching strategy or resource with the group. Everyone will leave with some useful ideas to best serve multilingual students. Before you RSVP, please consider what you would like to share with your colleagues. It could be an online resource, a book, a great graphic organizer you have developed,  a fun educational game or activity, or something else. You will be provided with a free lunch as we get to know one another. If you have special dietary needs, you are welcome to bring your own lunch with you. If you plan to attend, please complete the RSVP form HERE by May 6th.  You’ll also have the opportunity to win a door prize at the end of the workshop! If you have any questions, you may email Kathy Stamos at
