Accessing and Assessing the ACCESS: What Does It All Mean?

Last month I delivered professional development for my teachers on interpreting ACCESS results.  I made a Prezi to share with them that included basic information about WIDA and its language proficiency test (ACCESS).  We worked together to see how we can use student test scores to inform our instructional practices as we examined how those student scores align with WIDA's Can Do Descriptors.  I've included the Prezi here, so feel free to watch and learn something new about WIDA and ACCESS.

Welcome to my new website!

I am very excited to finally have my website up and running.  I have lots of ideas about how to make this site an invaluable resource for us in connecting with our English learners and improving our own instructional practices. I welcome any suggestions you may have because I want this to be something that helps you as much as it helps me. Please continue to have patience with me as I build this site, and please return regularly to check for new updates.  As always, thank you so much for your support!
