Last week, 330 educators met in the city of Portland, Oregon for the annual SIOP® National Conference.
Our treasured SIOP® authors (Dr. Jana Echevarría @jechev, Dr. MaryEllen Vogt @mvogt45, & Dr. Deborah Short) and special guest keynote speaker (Emily Francis @emilyfranesl) presented relevant and engaging keynote addresses and sessions.
Special thanks to our fantastic session presenters for sharing their expertise. Take a Look back at the conference schedule to view keynote and session titles.
Here are some of the most influential tweets from July 15-17.
Dr. MaryEllen Vogt challenged us to learn what is known about the under-representation of ELs in gifted programs, to help fellow educators understand what may mask giftedness in ELs, & to celebrate what our gifted ELs know & can do! @mvogt45 @SIOPModel #SIOPNC19 pic.twitter.com/odDCwYZrJt

Advocate and protect Els identity, so important for them to know they bring so many gifts and assets. @emilyfranESL @SIOPModel #SIOPNC19 Their language, life experiences, passion & dreams matter so much. You can make a difference and so will them if they are empowered to do so. pic.twitter.com/k8OWsYDH92

“Every child has a story. Every child has a name” (Emily Francis at SIOP Nat Conf). We must know & use the stories, & learn to pronounce each student’s name. Emily’s book faves: “The Day You Begin,” “Alma and How She Got Her Name, & “My Name is Jorge.” #siopnc19 @siopmodel pic.twitter.com/lh0Y7Pw9xK

@CBTennyson speaking about the need of diverse literature to help ALL STUDENTS connect “It doesn’t have to be an immigrant story to be relevant to immigrant students” and when Ss don’t immediately connect, “how does your journey relate?” #SIOPNC19 @SIOPModel #Ellchat_BkClub pic.twitter.com/jVZ1CIIwdc
