Language Fundamentals: How to Use the Multiple Indicator Protocol (MIP) for English Learner Identification and Reclassification - May 6, 2020 https://www.cesa2.org/pro/event_viewMQR.cfm?eventid=25644&memberid=46

Presenter: Audrey Lesondak, CESA 2 Consultant and Lead Designer of Wisconsin's MIP

Description: Wisconsin schools are required to use a uniform process for both identifying and exiting students from required English language support services. Since ACCESS English language proficiency assessment scores aren’t always enough for making eligibility determinations, schools are required at times to use the Multiple Indicator Protocol (MIP) as part of the EL decision-making process. The MIP allows for an in-depth look at students’ use of English within academic context.

The CESA 2 Language and Cultural Center (LCC)’s two-part workshop provides participants comprehensive training on when and how to use the MIP. Through case studies and hands-on examples, participants will:

1) Explore potential criteria, evidence, and artifacts that can be used for classroom observation and portfolio MIPs in the domains of reading, writing, speaking, and listening
2) Build a system for implementing and communicating the MIP within their local context
3) Acquire foundational knowledge for recognizing varying levels of academic language -- knowledge that is useful for MIP implementation, lesson planning, and instruction.

The May session will focus on using the MIP for reclassification and the August session will emphasize how to use the MIP for EL identification.

Cost: 

  • $40 for CESA 2 Title III Consortium Members
  • $180 for all others

Language Fundamentals: How to Use the Multiple Indicator Protocol (MIP) for English Learner Identification and Reclassification - August 25, 2020 https://www.cesa2.org/pro/event_viewMQR.cfm?eventid=25644&memberid=46

Presenter: Audrey Lesondak, CESA 2 Consultant and Lead Designer of Wisconsin's MIP

Description: Wisconsin schools are required to use a uniform process for both identifying and exiting students from required English language support services. Since ACCESS English language proficiency assessment scores aren’t always enough for making eligibility determinations, schools are required at times to use the Multiple Indicator Protocol (MIP) as part of the EL decision-making process. The MIP allows for an in-depth look at students’ use of English within academic context.

The CESA 2 Language and Cultural Center (LCC)’s two-part workshop provides participants comprehensive training on when and how to use the MIP. Through case studies and hands-on examples, participants will:

1) Explore potential criteria, evidence, and artifacts that can be used for classroom observation and portfolio MIPs in the domains of reading, writing, speaking, and listening
2) Build a system for implementing and communicating the MIP within their local context
3) Acquire foundational knowledge for recognizing varying levels of academic language -- knowledge that is useful for MIP implementation, lesson planning, and instruction.

The May session will focus on using the MIP for reclassification and the August session will emphasize how to use the MIP for EL identification.

Effective Instruction in a Workshop Model - October 21, 2020 https://www.cesa2.org/pro/event_viewMQR.cfm?eventid=25395&memberid=46

Presenter: Mary Jo Ziegler

Cost: $375 for entire series, lunch included

Description: 

This three-day series is meant to guide educators in planning effective instruction in any content area using a workshop structure. The focus will be on clear instruction, equity, and engagement. There will be time embedded for collaborative planning, so come as a teaching team!

Day one will be an overview of the structure and research to support it. In addition, we will zoom in on how to deliver instruction with clarity, intention, and purpose.

Day two will focus on equity. What does it mean? How do we do it? What do we need to consider? We will examine beginning of the year formative data to determine next steps and intentional instructional moves that support success for each and every learner.

Day three is all about engagement. What does it take to engage learners? Through self-assessment and use of student voice, we will design our instruction to reach-out and hook our learners into falling in love with learning.
