• The ELM Project Summit

    In order to extend the impact of The ELM Institute, an annual ELM Project Summit is held in late summer. The gathering will be an opportunity for ELM coaches to share how mainstream classroom teachers are using the skills they have acquired in their classrooms. Partner site ELM coaches and school administrators will then report back to colleagues, sharing experience implementing best practices across schools and districts. At the ELM Project Summit, ELM coaches, who are paid for their time, will provide data from the observation forms, which the ELM Project Team will use for analysis and curriculum revision.

    This ELM Project initiative stands to improve ELs’ comprehension of content and development of academic English, and qualifies mainstream teachers for re-licensure under the mandates of the LEAPS Act.
