America’s public schools instruct more than four million students who are English language learners. How can arts learning help these 'emerging bilinguals' learn English and flourish in school? Find out at the latest webinar from the NEA Task Force on the Arts and Human Development.

Carol Morgan, Deputy Director for Education at ArtsConnection and Jennifer Stengel-Mohr of Queens College, New York will discuss findings from their research on the ArtsConnection’s DELLTA program (Developing English Language Literacy through the Arts), which reaches English Language Learners and their teachers in 15 New York City public schools. This work was developed with the support from the U.S. Department of Education’s grant programs Arts in Education Model Development and Dissemination and Professional Development for Arts Educators.
