Hawai‘i Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) is a local professional organization for ESL professionals. Our goals are to create a community of ESL professionals and provide them with professional development and networking opportunities, and to increase public and government recognition and support of the ESL field, ESL educators, and English language learners.
Hawaii TESOL Conference 2021
Our conference on Saturday, February 13, 2021 will be ONLINE, with Deborah Short, TESOL International Association President, as plenary speaker, speaking to the conference theme of Principles, Pedagogy, and Practice.
Deborah is the current TESOL International Organization President, and former Center for Applied Linguistics Division Director and Peace Corps volunteer. She has provided professional development to teachers in 70+ school districts and states in the U.S. and in schools abroad on educational issues related to English language teaching. Deborah is co-author of “The 6 Principles for Exemplary Teaching of English Learners.”
Deborah's plenary, The 6 Principles® for Exemplary Teaching of English Learners: Pedagogy and Practice, will describe the vision for ELT education in the 21st century and discuss how to use TESOL’s 6 Principles to support teacher development with effective instructional and assessment practices. By implementing The 6 Principles® in strategic ways, English language educators can invigorate their lessons and promote multilingual learner success.
