Hi Susanna,

Yes, we will be recording the webinar and it will be available to all members of the CEIIA website. You will be able to access the webinar recording from the "Teaching ESL Literacy: Skills & Activities" workshop page. 


A number of refugee English language learners have literacy needs. In this webinar, you will:

  • identify emerging literacy skills to support the development of literacy
  • describe activities to support these emerging literacy skills

This webinar is part of a professional development series designed to strengthen the teaching skills of ELL instructors and volunteer tutors who work with refugee learners. Visit the ELL Training Network for more information.
