Brief Description of Services
MATSOL is by mission directly focused on professional learning for educators of ELLs. Given the range of educators and range of student needs within the group called "ELLs," MATSOL will work with districts related to their professional development plans for different groups of educators (teachers, administrators, and coaches). Our PD is aligned to the subject matter for ESL teachers, to Massachusetts Educator Evaluation standards, to SEI Endorsement Subject Matter standards, to Title III goals, to WIDA ELD Standards, and to new state Professional Development Standards.
