Karen Paine

The English for Speakers of Other Languages Department at James PB Duffy School #12 will develop language learning center kits for classroom teachers who have beginning-level newcomers. Ms. Paine will train her colleagues to use the materials during a professional development session. The training and materials will help reduce stress for educators as students acclimate to a new environment and a new language. The newcomer kit will help deepen student knowledge by providing modified materials that differentiate standards based subject matter.
