Online Self-Paced Tutorial Model

The main content of the tutorial is provided in the Unit Content sections. Each unit content section has the unit number and the title of the unit, along with a brief description of the contents and activities that will engage you in the tutorial. To begin each unit, click on the Unit Assignments link, which will open up the Unit Page which has the assignment for the unit.

The unit page has the unit Overview, Goals, and Assignments for you to complete in the unit. The assignments will help you achieve the goals for the unit and should be completed in total. The assignments may be links to website for reading, or may ask that you access files from the Tutorial Resources folder do something with them. There are normally several ways to access the materials, which may include links to off site, references to materials in the folder, and embedded materials from outside sites such as Scribd or YouTube. When the materials are outside links, the actual web address is provided for you in the Reading Links section. If you have trouble or difficulty accessing the material in one way, you may be able to access it in another way.

After completing all the readings and assignments in the unit, click on the Unit Assessments link in the Unit Content section and follow the instructions for taking the assessment to complete the unit. When you have completed all the units and submitted all the assessments, don't forget to submit a Tutorial Completion notice.

About this Tutorial
Developing an Effective Lau Plan for English Language Learners
The purpose of Developing Your Lau Plan for English Language Learners is to offer information and support to local education agencies (LEAs) about the federal responsibilities and state guidance regarding educational services for English Learners. In the Lau vs. Nichols Supreme Court Decision of 1974, the federal government determined LEAs are required to identify its ELLs, to design an effective program, to employ appropriate personnel, to align the instruction to state and local content standards, and to provide ongoing assessments to ascertain growth in English language proficiency and in the comprehension of academic content. The two units of this tutorial will guide you through the elements required in a Lau Plan as well as a review of examples of Lau Plans and methods and strategies to evaluate the effectiveness of your plan. At the end of each unit, there is a brief assessment. Once your assessments for both of the units are completed, you should send a Tutorial Completion Notice. Submission of this notice will trigger an evaluation of your engagement in the activities and assessments. Following this evaluation, you will receive a Certificate of Completion for 5 hours of professional development for this tutorial training.
