The proposal period is from March 1st through May 1st. All proposals must be received by May 1st.
Topics of interest to our audience include: K-12 education, young learners, trauma informed practice, content-based instruction, refugee concerns, teaching ELL adults, higher education, academic English, literacy, teacher training, immigration policy as it pertains to our students, SLIFE/SIFE, L2 teacher & learner identity, asset-based instruction, co-teaching, project-based learning, technology in English teaching, approaches to assessment, motivational strategies and more!
Here are some tips for writing a successful proposal:
* Think of your target audience, they are all in the ELL field, provide a brief overview and then dive right in!* Include ideas or activities in your proposal that teachers can immediately put to use in their classrooms.* Integrate possible classroom applications if your proposal is more of a conceptual/theoretical presentation.* Address the wide age group that ELL teachers work with in the classrooms.* Provide enough handouts for the presentation or an email address to contact the presenter.* Allow time in the presentation for a debrief/reflection period if there is a group activity.
