College of Education Faculty Awarded $1.9 Million Grant To Support English for Speakers of Other Languages Teachers in Urban Schools

Three College of Education faculty members are working to offer on-site training and mentorship to support students in the college’s Urban Accelerated Certification and Master’s Program and other teachers in their first years of their careers, thanks to a five-year, $1.9 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education.

Early Childhood Education faculty members Diane Truscott, Nancy Schafer and Laura May received the grant for the Quality Instruction for English Learners project, which prepares teachers to serve English language learners through site-based development, professional learning opportunities and mentoring.

“One key activity of the grant is to develop a Professional Learning Site with DeKalb County Schools to help bridge theory and practice for preservice and inservice teachers,” said Schafer, project director and co-principal investigator for the project. “This grant will allow us to better support first-year teachers as they transition from apprentice to teacher of record.”

The teacher professional development program will focus on literacy and language development with an infusion of science, technology, engineering and mathematics activities. These include summer workshops, new curriculum, technology for language acquisition and online professional learning communities.
