CTELL is the perfect opportunity for any educator in Wisconsin who works with ELLs and hopes to improve their instructional practice and their educational program.  Supported through a 1.5 million dollar federal grant through the Office of English Language Acquisition, Edgewood College’s CTELL Program offers scholarship-supported tuition opportunities for participation in a professional development sequence consisting of two three-graduate credit courses beginning in June 2015.

  • Unique cohort-based format for instruction, focused on allowing educators at every learning level the chance to learn with others who deal with their unique challenges
  • Instruction presented in one face-to-face meeting at various locations around the state of Wisconsin (scheduled between June 15-20, 2015). with the remainder as a complete on-line version to meet the scheduling needs of educators from around the state of Wisconsin
  • Teams of educators are encouraged to apply together in order to truly impact instruction and content in your particular educational context
  • Our 2015 cohort will include a special cohort specifically for 4K teachers from around our state.

In the knowledge economy of the 21st century, English language skills are essential to the academic and career success of anyone who seeks a place in our emerging economy.   Any educator who works with ELLs in the K-12 educational environment should take advantage of this unique professional development opportunity.
