Janeen Kelly, director of the ELL program for WCSD, has been named the Action Plan Scholarship (APS) recipient for 2012-13 by Sierra Nevada College. She will receive a $5,000 scholarship to be used to implement the Action Plan she formulated while she was a student at SNC.
Janeen is being recognized for her outstanding Action Plan “Author 2 Author”. Her program is designed to improve students writing for ELL students by providing high school students with the opportunity to “peer conference” with fifth-grade ELL students as they apply the 6+1 traits of writing, writers’ workshop framework and effective conferencing techniques. The purpose of this collaboration is to encourage ELL students to share their work and look more objectively at their own writing through valuable feedback from their high school mentor.
Janeen will receive her award during a ceremony at Corbett Elementary School on Wednesday, February 20, at 3 p.m.
Congratulations to Janeen!
