Effectively Reaching Your Students with Limited or Interrupted Formal Education (SLIFE)

Course Description

Join a supportive cohort of teachers and administrators as we delve into the specific strengths and challenges of students with limited or interrupted formal education (SLIFE) in this online course.

Over the three course components, you will delve more deeply into SLIFE topics including supporting and engaging SLIFE and their families; developing of materials, activities, and programs; and effectively instructing SLIFE.

As in our other online courses, the heart of this course is a Professional Learning Community-based discussion. You’ll have the opportunity to share your expertise with your colleagues as well as provide and receive feedback. At the end of the course, you will have a SLIFE-specific plan for instruction and/or a plan for a SLIFE program, depending on your educational role. We look forward to working with you to fill your toolbox with useful strategies for supporting SLIFE and to build a network of support.
