Project Professional Development for Fourth to Sixth Grade Teachers of English to Diverse Learners: Strategies for Effective Language Production, was sponsored by the Center for Educational Research of the College of Education of the University of Puerto Rico at Río Piedras and the Council of Higher Education of Puerto Rico with funds of No Child Left Behind Law (NCLB-08-13). The purpose of this project was to achieve a high degree competent educator who can implement teaching strategies pertinent to the educational growth of diverse learners. To reach this goal, the project facilitated the professional development of approximately 40 teachers from public and private schools in areas such as visual and performing arts, music, curriculum alignment, state of the art technology, and assessment strategies integrated to the teaching of English to diverse learners for a better academic achievement. It also promotes and disseminates participants’ strategic planning through the design of curricular matrix(es) based on standards of excellence. This manual includes the lessons designed by project participants which illustrate how to integrate the visual arts, music, and technology to the teaching of English so that students may have the opportunity to learn from those strategies and have practical experience utilizing them.
