Module Overview

 Loyola Marymount University's Center for Equity for English Learners  has created online professional development modules that focus on the Doing What Works Dialogic Reading framework with an emphasis on effective practices for Dual Language Learners/English Learners (DLL/ELs).  

These modules were created in part with funding from a Doing What Works Grant and were piloted with Early Childhood Education partners in the Los Angeles Unified School District, Stretch to Kindergarten (Family Engagement Institute), and two institutes of higher education (LMU and Cal State Channel Islands).  

Our goal is provide two online modules that will increase knowledge and use of Dialogic Reading practices for professionals working in culturally and linguistically diverse Early Childhood Education (ECE) and Transitional Kindergarten (TK) settings.

As you engage in these modules, you will have an opportunity to listen to video segments that present valuable information, provide recommended resources, classroom connections and interactive activities to support your professional learning.  Please begin by clicking the Online Module I Introduction link.
