Engaging and Advancing Community-Centered Teacher Development (EnACTeD)
EnACTeD offers professional development to teachers, prepares preservice and inservice teachers to obtain ESL/DL licensure, and prepares all participants in our programs to work with ESL and their families through community-engaged activities.
We design Professional Development (PD) and ESL/DL teacher development centered on
1) research-based instructional practices that support academic language development in content areas; and
2) strengths-based family and community engagement efforts.
Goal 1 – Develop and provide online professional development (PD) to engage up to 120 educational professionals working with English Learners (ELs).
Goal 2 – Develop an English as a Second Language (ESL)/Dual Language (DL) Second Academic Concentration (SAC) to prepare up to 36 undergraduate Elementary Education preservice teachers.
Goal 3 – Develop an ESL/DL add-on program to prepare up to 60 inservice teachers.
Goal 4 – Implement family ESL classes, family technology workshops, and parents-and-children-together (PACT) activities led by participants in PD (Goal 1), elementary SAC (Goal 2), and add-on ESL/DL programs (Goal 3) for up to 1,200 families.
