Jennie will walk you through an engaging Language Development program that has been developed over several years of working in a school with a high ELL population, and thus low levels of expressive language. Flexible and engaging, it can be used in small group or whole class settings, and fosters English language development from your lowest ELL student, all the way to your gifted students.
