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.

Language Fundamentals: How to Use the Multiple Indicator Protocol (MIP) for English Learner Identification and Reclassification (2020-2021) - May 6, 2021 http://www.cesa2.org/pro/event_viewMQR.cfm?eventid=26791&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 virtual 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) Identify a method for 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.

These session have been adjusted to account for schools out of session. The August session will emphasize how to use the MIP for EL identification. The May session will focus on using the MIP for reclassification.

Session 1 will take place on Tuesday, August 25 from 9:00 - 10:30 and 11:00 - noon via Zoom. 

Session 2 will take place on Thursday, May 6 from 9:00 - 10:30 and 11:00 - noon via Zoom. 

Cost: 

  • $40 for CESA 2 Title III Consortium Members
  • $89 for all others
