Teachers Professional Development Training
Measurable Academic Gains through Integrated Curriculum (MAGIC) for English Language Learners is a series of courses designed to assist K-12 educators in learning how content and language integration could enhance ELL students’ learning. It also assists them in adapting theories and best practices in their classroom using a series of skill-building workshops, a Participatory Action Research (PAR) inquiry framework and applying the WIDA English Language Proficiency Standards into their classrooms.
The course was developed and offered as a part of the MAGIC Project, a five year Professional Development initiative funded through the U.S. Department of Education. The series of courses employs a wide range of learning approaches including classroom participation, active reflective learning, presentations and written assignments.
