    Region One ESC (Edinburg, TX)

    Our Project RISE Master and Mentor teachers participated in Sheltered Instruction Professional Development with Region One ESC Bilingual Director, Karina Chapa this week. Our teacher leaders engaged in conversations and activities that support English Learner development. Every participant explored Sheltered Instruction techniques while creating foldables which included actionable steps to support content and language development on their campuses. Follow Project RISE on Twitter @ESC1ProjectRISE for updates on how our teacher leaders are supporting learning on their campuses, and follow the Region One ESC Bilingual department on Twitter @ESC1bilingual.
