2018 Conference Proposals

The Planning Committee for the 2018 ESC-20 Language Conference invites you to share your bilingual and ESL expertise in program development and/or classroom instruction with your colleagues at this year's conference.  As always, the committee is particularly interested in classroom teachers and leadership (new and veteran) sharing their instructional best practices with conference attendees.  We encourage you to believe in the power of your practices and share with visiting educators the possibilities of going above and beyond our current teaching practices in gaining English acquisition, promoting biliteracy, and promoting biculturalism. All lead presenters will be able to attend the conference at a $0 fee.  You will need to register in the CONNECT20 system. A code will be sent to you after all proposals have been selected. You will be able to register at that time.


The annual ESC-20 Language Conference will take place November 1, 2018 at Fred E. Maples Conference Center at Education Service Center, Region 20 in San Antonio, Texas. Campus visits are November 2, 2018.
