Culture, Context, and Diversity: Effective Professional Development for English Learners
For professional development to be successful, teaching and learning must go beyond the acquisition of basic skills and concepts through rote memorization and must engage students in critical thinking, analysis, synthesis and evaluation of data, and personal and societal decision-making. It is imperative to think about student engagement as a requisite to any school reforms and innovations. An effective professional development must consider the roles of students' cultures, classroom contexts, and engagement.

Is It a Language Issue or a Skill Iissue?
English Learners in the US must meet the same academic standards as native speakers of English. According to the latest NAEP study (2015), 73% and 79% of California’s ELs read below the basic level in 4th and 8th grade (respectively). This research does identify literacy skills that ELs have in Spanish, yet cannot demonstrate in English. Assessing the same skills in both languages is critical to determining whether it is a language issue, skill issue, or both.

Engaging Students in Critical Literary Analysis Using Biography, Social Justice Fiction & Fairy Tales From a Vygotskian Theoretical Framework
Literature reflects the cultural ways of every society. Embedded in story are the human experiences of life. An important role of teachers is to engage students in the critical reflection of meaning, values, and life's lessons. Vygotsky saw the teachers’ role as sociocultural mediators that not only bridge their cultural past but use story to create new ways of thinking and solutions to everyday challenges and problems. We will share key elements of Vygotsky's theory to organize teaching/learning by using mediated structures to deliberately guide, making literary elements visible, and engage in critical reflection.

ED Talks
ED Talks showcase ELD/bilingual students presenting on a problem they want to solve within their community, college major, or career interest in front of an authentic theater audience. These talks are student-driven using project-based learning as the foundation. Students choose topics that they are personal/passionate about and shoot/edit each presentation in a TED Talk format.

Spanish TWI transitions from Elementary to Middle School for Students Academically at-Risk.
Students academically at-risk may face more challenges when transitioning from elementary to middle school. How do they fare in a Spanish TWI program? In this presentation, we utilize Participatory Action Research (PAR) processes, an ongoing research method that encourages educators to question their own practices and context in order to improve them. We will discuss how specific groups of students (learning disabilities, low socioeconomic status, English Learners, and certain language minorities) fare in transitioning to middle school. The PAR study explores perceptions and beliefs of dual immersion teachers, parents, students and scholars. This session will also delve into practices, expectations and strategies to improve those transitions.

“There are so many dreams to be fulfilled, but Ultima says a man's destiny must unfold itself like a flower, with only the sun and the earth and water making it blossom, and no one else meddling in it.”  BLESS ME, ULTIMA is based upon the controversial novel by Rudolfo Anaya.  It is a turbulent coming of age story about Antonio Márez, a young boy growing up in New Mexico during World War II.  When a mysterious curandera, Ultima, comes to live with his family, she teaches him about the power of the spiritual world.  As their relationship grows, Antonio begins to question the strict Catholic doctrine he has been taught by his parents.  Through a series of mysterious and, at times, terrifying events Antonio must grapple with questions about his own destiny, the relationship between good vs. evil and, ultimately, how to reconcile Ultima’s powers with those of the God of his church.

Educational Trajectories of EL Students in Dual Language Programs
This presentation examines the language proficiency and reading achievement trajectories of 2201 fourth- through eighth-grade EL students who differed by English language proficiency and were enrolled in a dual language program. Results showed that: 1) students achieved average in Spanish reading achievement and at similar levels in English as their English mainstream ELL peers; 2) students in the four English language proficiency groups varied significantly in all outcome measures in English and Spanish (FEP>Advanced>Intermediate>Beginner) by upper, but not K/1 entry, grades; and 3) examining students’ trajectories shows the importance of Bilingual, not just English, proficiency at school entry and the impact of Spanish reading on English reading in grades 3 and 5-8.
