    Instructors go to educational development conference

    Students who are new to the U.S. have a lot to cover to catch up and find a secure life here. They have no time to waste. Laney faculty are mindful of this and have recently attended the 2015 Conference on Acceleration in Developmental Education (CADE). This is the conference website: http://alp-deved.org/2014/12/2015-conference-acceleration-developmental-education/

    Aimed at faculty and administrators from community colleges, the conference offers best practices and insights from those who teach English as a second language to this population. Five ESOL faculty from Laney College traveled to Costa Mesa, CA, to give presentations on their improved curriculum.

    Their presentation, titled “Teach with a Reach: Teaching to Accelerate Students Through the ESOL Course Sequence”, highlighted curriculum and a professional learning model that detailed how the teachers in the ESOL Department and its students are“”exceeding expectations”. The presentation was well received by those in attendance.

    (L-R) Suzan Tiemroth-Zavala, Anna Cortesio, Amy Loewen, Lisa Cook, Chelsea Cohen.

    The presenters in the group were:

    Lisa Cook, ESOL Instructor, Faculty Senate President

    Chelsea Cohen, ESOL Instructor

    Anna Cortesio, ESOL Instructor

    Amy Loewen, ESOL Instructor

    Suzan Tiemroth-Zavala, ESOL Instructor
