Description/Abstract: English Language Learners Day by Day, K-6, Wednesday, 11/18, 4-5:30pm

Christina M. Celic, Teachers College graduate in Bilingual-Bicultural Education, will speak on her new publication, English Language Learners Day by Day, K-6: A Complete Guide to Literacy, Content-Area, and Language Instruction (Heinemann, 2009). Including a foreword by Ofelia Garcia, Celicís foundational guide confronts the challenges of ESL, bilingual, and mainstream teachers who work with English language learners, and responds with realistic and practical solutions. It helps answer the question, "How can I teach the grade-level curriculum in a way that makes my English language learners successful?" Celic shows what best practices look like on a day-to-day basis from day one, integrating literacy and content area instruction; teaching academic language throughout the curriculum; and differentiating instruction to meet individual learning needs.

Coming from a family of educators, Christina Celic has been an ESL and bilingual teacher in New York and Illinois, as well as a staff developer in New York City and Sao Paulo, Brazil. She taught at P.S. 212, a public elementary school in a diverse immigrant community in Queens, New York, and served as a literacy coach at P.S. 165, a dual language school in Manhattan's Upper West Side.
