Stretching Your Co-Teaching: Collaborating with WIDA

Join Andrea Honigsfeld and Jon Nordmeyer for a two-day workshop in Ho Chi Minh City to learn how to stretch your co-teaching. This interactive workshop will guide teachers through first exploring the rationale for collaboration then examining the collaboration cycle of co-planning, co-teaching, co-assessing and co-reflecting.

We will consider how WIDA supports a focus on student assets to scaffold both integrated language and content learning. And building on what teachers can do, we will connect collaborative practices to professional learning through a culture of relational trust. You’ll learn how to integrate the WIDA standards framework: both to initiate new partnerships and to maximize existing co-teaching relationships. As experienced educators and collaborators, Andrea and Jon will demonstrate specific co-teaching strategies and participants will leave with practical tools they can use right away to serve all learners in every classroom.
