JOB POST: ESOL PROGRAM INSTRUCTOR (PART-TIME)
http://www.nynice.org/esol_instructor_pt
New Immigrant Community Empowerment (NICE) is seeking an ESOL Program Coordinator who will lead NICE’s efforts to provide immigrant workers with English classes for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL).
NICE is a community-based organization dedicated to advancing the rights of immigrant workers through innovative community organizing, grassroots advocacy, and service delivery. NICE builds the individual and collective power of some of the most vulnerable workers, such as day laborers, domestic workers, and other newly arrived immigrants, in Queens and across New York City. Current campaigns focus on curtailing wage theft and safety violations through construction contractor licensing reform, seeking justice for job seekers through employment agency reform, and garnering municipal support for day laborer worker centers. The NICE Community Job Center in Jackson Heights serves as a safer alternative for day laborers and domestic workers to soliciting employment in the streets or at employment agencies. In addition to organizing jobs with workers, NICE provides workforce development trainings, health and safety certification, assistance to recover unpaid wages, and other critical services in the community.
RESPONSIBILITIES
• Conduct student intake and assessments
• Teach ESOL classes based on NICE curriculum
• Maintain ESL class records and reports on program activities
REQUIRED QUALIFICATIONS
• TESOL certificate or other ESOL teacher training equivalent
• Experience working with multi-level ESOL classes, a plus
• Flexibility in schedule; classes may take place in the early morning, evenings and/or weekends
• Ability to develop appropriate, trusting relationships with a predominantly Spanish-speaking community of immigrant workers
• Strong social justice analysis, particularly around immigration, class/labor, gender, and race
• Experience working with immigrant communities or other vulnerable individuals
• Experience managing cases with vulnerable individuals, a plus
• Knowledge of computer operations (including but not limited to, Google Apps, Microsoft Office, etc.), as well as copiers, fax machines, and phones
• Administrative and organizational skills necessary to carry out job description responsibilities
HOW TO APPLY
Please submit the following documents to [email protected] with the subject line: ESOL Instructor
• Cover letter
• Resume
• Professional writing sample
• Three (3) references (at least 2 professional)
Application review will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled.

#WIDAeConference #WIDAStandards session spotlight! Attend the 2021 #WIDAeConference and join Martha Boisselle and Kristen Leathers for their session "Collaboration as a Tool for Language Development and English Language Arts."

Session description:
In this session, an ESL and an ELA teacher jointly explore the Big Ideas of collaboration and integration of content and language at the lesson level. Presenters will model a collaborative lesson planning session that integrates English Language Arts standards and WIDA ELD Standard 2 – Language for Language Arts. Using grade-level cluster materials to define high expectations for all multilingual learners, the presenters will demonstrate ways to unpack academic content standards to determine Language Expectations and their related Language Functions and Features. Participants will leave the workshop with a) a better understanding of how to integrate content and language, b) an authentic example of collaborative practice between a content and a language teacher, and c) a sample lesson plan that demonstrates how to differentiate content and provide scaffolding for students at various English language proficiency levels within the same class and lesson.

RESPONSE TO INTERVENTION (RTI) FOR ELLS/MLLs

All webinars will be held from 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm on dates indicated below:

Date(s): March 12, 2020
March 26, 2020

Participants must register for both sessions of the series

Participants will be introduced to RTI, a model designed to improve systems of support for struggling learners, including ELLs/MLLs with suspected disabilities. This four-part series will explore the 3-tier system constructed with the goal of providing more intense, individualized support as students display increased learning difficulties. RTI teams with bilingual special education and ENL teachers are better prepared to support the growing need to differentiate between a language difference and a language disability for an ELL/MLL suspected of having a learning disability prior to the referral process to Special Education. Characteristics of Language Differences or Language Disabilities will be presented through case studies, in which participants will identify the difference or disability and present possible intervention strategies to reduce overrepresentation of ELLs/MLLs in more restrictive environments.
Audience: ENL, Bilingual, Special Education Teacher, General Education Teachers working with ELL/MLL Students with suspected Learning Disabilities
