Indiana Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages

Attention K-12 Teachers

Please take this 5-7 min survey to provide insight into COVID-19’s impact in ESL teachers’ work.

Researchers from Indiana, Minnesota, and Wisconsin are doing a study of ESL teachers who serve in their states. We want to know more about what you did before and during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are examining service and instruction. We define service as tasks you do as an ESL professional that are “non-language” oriented, but may facilitate access to instruction. We define instruction as the language related parts of your day that involve direct or collaborative instruction to support your ELs.

Thank you in advance for your time!

A Special Message from INTESOL

As many of you are hard at work transforming how instruction and services are delivered to Indiana students during this COVID-19 pandemic, we will be sharing resources to support your efforts to uphold equitable practices for English learners. The English Learners Success Forum offers the following guidelines, which align with IDOE State Superintendent, Jennifer McCormick's statement of e-learning requirements.
