Welcome to our ELL PDA Resource Webpage!
Here you will find resources and materials that were highlighted during our meetings and webinars as well as related links and topics of interest. This is the best way for us to share the wealth of information that we have been generating for our Secondary Cohort. This site will begin as a repository for information, but we will strive to introduce some capacity for interaction and sharing in 2010. You will have access to the various documents and Power Points that were highlighted during our November forum in Alabaster. As you will probably notice, the ELL PDA information is contained within the central column only. The information in the margins relates to our Eastern Stream Center website (www.easternstream.org). Some of this information may be of interest to you, but it does not relate to our Alabama project.
Here you will find materials used during the webinars and meetings as well as related links and topics of interest. Please use this as an example for building your own web based resource.
