Don’t Miss: March’s Adult ELL & Disabilities Chat!

Greetings LINCS Community,

Next Monday, March 2, we begin the expert-led special event: Helping Adult English Language Learners Who Have Learning Challenges.

Join us for a focused examination on:

  • Causes for learning challenges in some adult English Language Learners (ELLs) who may or may not have undiagnosed Learning Disabilities; and
  • Lessons on helping these ELLs thrive in the classroom.

This special discussion will feature three guest speakers:

Dr. Robin Lovrien is an ESL/ESOL teacher and professional developer, specializing in the learning difficulties of low literate adult ELLs as well as managing the adult ESOL classroom to be as inclusive for learners of varying backgrounds and abilities as possible.

Alicia Broggio is a teacher with Literacy Volunteers at the public library of Yonkers, New York.  She is a master trainer, supervising and coaching other teachers in effective classroom management and instructional practices.

Lauren Osowski is the ESOL Coordinator and an ESOL teacher at the Adult Learning Center in Nashua, New Hampshire. In addition to teaching, Ms. Osowski has presented more than a dozen workshops for ESL teachers on topics related to all levels of ELLs. She has also completed several mini-grant projects for the state of New Hampshire.

To join in, make sure you are a member of the Adult English Language Learners or Disabilities in Adult Education groups.

We look forward to this engaging conversation next week!

Best regards,

The LINCS Community Team
