Teachers from across North Carolina joined NCCAT for "Literacy for ESL Teachers Kindergarten" in Ocracoke. English Language Learners can often participate in writing activities, even when their speaking skills are limited. Elementary ESL teachers explored the five components of effective literacy instruction while collaborating with colleagues and a district ESL coach to learn how to help their pupils improve their listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills based on reading science. 

The program was held June 20-24. Writing is also a key component and is one avenue for meaningful use of language. English Language Learners can often participate in writing activities, even when their speaking skills are limited. This program was intended for ESL teachers and coaches in kindergarten through fifth-grade.
