The Language Series

Wilkomen! Benvenuti! Bienvenidos! Ni hau! Welcome!

Teachers, parents, and leaders will expand their repertoire of effective and developmentally appropriate language learning skills at the day-long conference. You will choose breakout sessions for hands-on learning opportunities and discuss topics relevant to progressive language learning. Led by experts in the field, you’ll explore teaching tools such as music, movement, and drama and learn how they will excite your students as they develop their bilingualism/multilingualism.

As a participant, you will:

  • Learn to create transformative moments of language growth in the classroom
  • Re-energize your practice with developmentally appropriate tools and techniques
  • Choose from interactive, hands-on sessions that match your personal interests
  • Meet and network with peers and explore an exchange of progressive ideas together

The Language Series is on hiatus. We expect it to return Fall 2025. Contact with questions/feedback.

The discussion with my peers on oral language, building language, and project-based learning was and continues to deepen my understandings of language and literacy development for my students.
Museum Magnet School
Networking and sharing ideas and experiences with teachers at my grade level and others were extremely useful. Engaging with the presenters and doing hands-on activities in my workshops was the best way for my to experiment and learn. Thank you for a wonderful experience!
The Cathedral School
The use of different media including PowerPoint, posters, and pocket charts with word/sentence strips made the presentations very engaging. The descriptions of specific procedures given in the handouts and presentation materials gave me a wealth of ideas I can use for creating charts in my mini lessons or use as references for my students during independent workshop activities.

I am overwhelmed with the amount of good, practical information!
Bank Street Graduate School Student
Everything was interesting and engaging. I got ideas that I will implement immediately, like a workshop for parents to help them help their children. I also learned about things I want to explore further.
The Family School 443X
I have never been to Bank Street before, only know of its wonderful reputation. It has been a treat to attend. Thanks for the opportunity!
