This is session three of six for the series titled Literacy Projects for Adolescent English Learners
NOTE: While we recommend that you attend all sessions of the workshop series to meet the learning objectives, each workshop can be attended as a standalone. Full members will also have access to view the recordings on-demand and earn up to six continuing education credits.
For English Learners, the most challenging part of completing a research project is gathering information and data that they can read and understand. Join Shelly Terrell as she shares how to use free, education-friendly infographic design tools to enhance student data visualization, including scaffolds, supports, and strategies to help students complete their projects. Participants will also have an opportunity to access done-for-you templates to create their own infographic project that they can immediately use with their students.
- Evaluate a variety of free, education-friendly infographic design tools appropriate for adolescent English Learners in grades 4-12
