The data below is summarized from quantitative data on the Workshop Evaluation Form distributed at the end of the workshop:

 

(1= not satisfied, 5 = very satisfied)

Given below is a compilation of participants' responses to the following query on the Workshop Evaluation Form:  

"What was your key takeaway from this event?"

 

  • language target is an important and complementary objective to have for a lesson. Translanguaging is not the same as code-switching. Reminder on differentiation and what it's supposed to be.

  • Formulating the Language Targets; Scaffolding and Differentiation.

  • Lots of great ideas and information provided... as well as numerous, voluminous resources that I can continue to learn from for quite some time. I really appreciate leaving the workshop with lots of things to look over and continue learning from.

  • Using more time to develop the discourse of the topic discussed in Math will benefit all the learners in my class and myself as a teacher.

  • Strategies and the simple way in which things are broken down for the learner. Beth is an excellent outstanding and coach..

  • I feel empowered to more effectively support our multilingual students' language and content learning.

  • Many different methods that I can implement.

  • That I need to refocus on language and more explicitly teach bricks.
