The Institute of Education Sciences recently announced that they had funded WestEd to create a National Research & Development Center to Improve Education for Secondary English Learners that has already developed a website chock full of resources.
Interestingly, last July I posted about the IES funding another group in Texas to do something similar. Here’s what I shared:
The Institute of Education Sciences (IES) has awarded the University of Houston (UH) a multi-year, $10 million grant to establish a national research and development center for English learners at the University’s Texas Institute for Measurement, Evaluation, and Statistics (TIMES).
Learn more about it at $10 Million Grant to Move Middle and High School Instruction Beyond Language.
I’m not sure if and how the two are doing different work. I’ll contact IES and report back….
