Hi everyone,

  It has been a busy week for everyone on and off the listserve. Our conversations this week have included
Also in the news is the arrival of the EAP teaching and learning sequences and formative assessment tasks, which include annotated samples of student work.
The Ministry of Education's News Update is now online. It has information on 
  • the period 1 funding due March 3rd
  •  transitioning to ELLP to establish eligibility for funding
  • ESOL Professional Learning Communities
  • spotlight on Victory Primary School
  • and news of the updates on the Ministry website
On other communities
Literacy Online have just issued news about the latest Connected series (2013) which is now live on Literacy Online. These resources have highly supportive visuals that make them especially useful for English language learners. In addition to printed resources, each article is available in Google Slides on Google Drive. My email last week gives links to help materials.

Have a great week.
