At ELSF, we believe that every multilingual student should engage in learning that allows them to thrive academically. To achieve this vision, we partner with content developers interested in designing or refinings core learning materials that include the assets and needs of multilingual learners. Our upcoming mini-institute for content developers is an example of that partnership.

Join us in this 4-hour virtual foundational institute to dive deep into our research-based guidelines for high-quality instructional materials inclusive of multilingual learners. Participants will walk away with concrete knowledge of how to incorporate ELSF’s Guidelines in their instructional materials and identify their highest-leverage improvement areas.


  • Learn about the research base for the design of the guidelines
  • Gain knowledge and interact with the guidelines for their discipline in order to understand the architecture and the content and how they work together to support multilingual students in accessing grade-level content.
  • Co-construct emerging examples or prototypes in instructional materials that are representative of core concepts in the Guidelines.
  • Self-assess their current instructional materials and development processes against the guidelines in order to evaluate their strengths and areas of growth and/or make comparisons between their theory of action and ELSF’s.


See Proposed Agenda for further details.

  • Understand current thinking and how it relates to research-based practices
