Workshop Topic: Blending English Language Learners into Mainstream Classrooms
Dr. Virginia Rojas
Presented By: Dr. Virginia Rojas – known around the globe as Gini – has been working with international schools for three decades to increase capacities for teaching English learners in an 'immersion-language’ environment. She teaches at the TTC in London or Miami (www.theTTC.org) and is an ASCD faculty member (www.ascd.org). In February 2016, Dr. Rojas was inducted to the AAIE (Association for Advancement of International Education) Hall of Fame.. Dr. Rojas is partnering with ISS to offer a three-course EAL certification program as a means for schools to turn every teacher into a language teacher. Other than working with that program on a part-time basis, Dr. Rojas is retiring at the end of the 2017 school year. She thanks international teachers, administrators, and schools for their support over the years!
