2nd Annual EL Civics Conference

North Orange Community College District hosted the 2nd Annual EL Civics Conference in February. More than 60 teachers, administrators and staff members participated. They came to North Orange’s beautiful Anaheim campus from twenty-six southern California agencies representing communities as far away as San Diego, Santa Barbara and San Bernardino.


Sessions included EL Civics Basics, Understanding and Customizing EL Civics Civic Objectives and Additional Assessment Plans (COAAPS) and Effective Lesson Planning for EL Civics.


Three major publishers, Cambridge University Press, Pearson ELT and National Geographic Learning (formerly Heinle), provided lunch and discussed published materials appropriate for use in EL Civics classes.


Representatives from North Orange County CCD, MiraCosta College and Mt. San Antonio College gave poster sessions on Goal Setting and Orientation, Nutrition and Health, Making Medical Appointments and Environmental Concerns.  One participant commented in her evaluation

I enjoyed this conference very much. Very well run, professional & informative.  THANK YOU.  I’ll be back next year.

You can attend next year, too! The 3rd Annual EL Civics Conference will be held at Mt. Sac College in Walnut, California in February 7, 2014.
