WIDA eWorkshop: The WIDA Standards Framework: A Collaborative Approach

Fri, February 19 8:00 AM - Tue, August 31 2021 5:00 PM


  • Susan Connolly
  • Patty Finnegan


This eWorkshop is designed to strengthen instructional practices that focus on language for learning using the WIDA English Language Development Standards Framework, 2020 Edition. There are six modules in this eWorkshop. Educators can use the six modules as shared professional development by going through the modules on the same weekly schedule and then meeting to discuss the topics of each module. There are discussion questions to support this approach. These modules provide self-paced learning and educators are free to engage at the pace that best fits their own needs and context.
