Dialogic Reading for Teachers of Dual Language Learners Online Modules

Loyola Marymount University's Center for Equity for English Learners has created online professional development modules that focus on the Doing What Works Dialogic Reading framework with an emphasis on effective practices for Dual Language Learners/English Learners (DLL/ELs).

These modules were created in part with funding from a Doing What Works Grant and were piloted with Early Childhood Education partners in the Los Angeles Unified School District, Stretch to Kindergarten (Family Engagement Institute), and two institutes of higher education (LMU and Cal State Channel Islands).
