AI Summer School Closes Grab-and-Go Lunch Speakers Model-Based Machine Learning Session Abstract Today, thousands of scientists and engineers are applying machine learning to an extraordinarily broad range of domains, and over the last five decades, researchers have created literally thousands of machine learning algorithms. Traditionally an engineer wanting to solve a problem using machine learning must choose one or more of these algorithms to try, and their choice is often constrained by their familiarity with an algorithm, or by the availability of software implementations.
Discussion questions Review student demographic information for your school or school district. Does your ELL population reflect the trends described by Dr. Specifically, what percentage of students is ELL this school year as compared to five years ago?
What is the primary language spoken by ELLs at home? The term "English language learner" is a broad term. Describe the diverse population that falls into this category. Short described four challenges facing middle and high school teachers in terms of educating ELL students.
Describe the ways your school is addressing those challenges. In addition, describe other challenges that you face as a faculty in educating your ELL students. Then, brainstorm some solutions to those challenges.
Consider the objectives for one content area you teach, and consider the key language features for that content. In what ways are you already incorporating some aspects of the SIOP model? Share those strategies with your colleagues. What did you learn from watching the 6th grade social studies lesson that you could incorporate into your classroom?
Describe the similarities and differences between the SIOP plan for teaching reading processes and what you know about effective strategy instruction for middle and high school students. Hello, I'm Delia Pompa.
Today, we'll be talking about English-Language Learners in middle and high school. Deborah Short is here to help. She's the senior research associate for language in education and academic development at the Center for Applied Linguistics, here in Washington, D.
Thanks for joining us, Deborah. Tell us a little bit about English-Language Learners in the U. I'm pleased to be here to talk about this group of students, because it's very important that we pay attention to their language and content learning. We know, from some of the demographic data that The Department of Ed has been collecting, that the growth of ELL enrollment has been exponential over the past decade.
Especially when compared to the total enrollment at the k level. We know that most of the English Language Learners are identified as being in elementary school. But there's still a significant number that are at the middle and high school levels.
And so we had asked recently the Migration Policy Institute, to try to find that number for us. They looked at the census data, which we know is a little bit of an under-report.
But they found that there were about a million and a half English Language Learners inthat were identified as students in grades But I would not be surprised if that number weren't double, by now, in our schools.
Especially students who are still struggling with academic English. But one other thing that's very significant we should know about is that most of our adolescent English Language Learners are actually second and third generation immigrants.
It means that we have families, perhaps, that are still struggling with literacy. And so the children are struggling with this as well. And so our schools have got to do a better job to help all of our students at middle and high school levels.
Well, we know that English Language Learner, the term, itself, is a term that refers to a very diverse population. What are some of the distinguishing characteristics of these kids? Thanks for asking that, Delia. Because some people think ESL students are one type of group, or one type of student.An ability and capacity acquired through deliberate, systematic, and sustained effort to smoothly and adaptively carryout complex activities or job functions involving ideas (cognitive skills), things (technical skills), and/or people (interpersonal skills).

Box and Cox () developed the transformation. Estimation of any Box-Cox parameters is by maximum likelihood. Box and Cox () offered an example in which the data had the form of survival times but the underlying biological structure was of hazard rates, and the transformation identified this.
The research paper must follow the current MLA format and guidelines to pass. The research paper may be literary or non-literary based upon the decision of each school. Middle school research paper topics should as well be revised for interest and purpose.
Keep in mind that you must have a personal interest in the topic you intend to write. Avoid writing on a topic simply because it is an academic requirement. Dear Parent/Guardian, Your student will begin the senior research paper next week in his/her English class.
