Doing What Works Digital Workshop

A new Teacher-to-Teacher digital workshop ( is now available. Its subject is Doing What Works: Teaching Reading to English Language Learners. The workshop is specifically geared to techniques and practices for students in elementary grades.

Doing What Works is an exciting new site sponsored by the U.S. Department of Education. It is dedicated to helping educators identify and make use of effective teaching practices. The Doing What Works website ( contains Practice Guides from which the workshop material is drawn. These Practice Guides reflect teaching practices that the Institute for Educational Services have found to be effective for teaching English Language Learners. The Teacher-to-Teacher digital workshop on teaching reading to English Language Learners is designed as a visual complement to the much more extensive materials presented in the subject's Practice Guide.

Both the website and this digital workshop also discuss examples of how educators might apply research findings on effective practice. The workshop also highlights some of the extensive interviews with experts in the field from the Doing What Works website. After completing the workshop, participants may wish to revisit that Doing What Works website to access additional information or background on the workshop material.
