2021 MATSOL Conference
Massachusetts Association of Teachers of Speakers of Other Languages (MATSOL)
The 2021 MATSOL Conference brings together educators of English Learners from across the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. Due to the ongoing pandemic, the MATSOL Board of Directors decided to hold the conference virtually again this year.
The MATSOL conference audience will include teachers, administrators, and other educators in:
- PK-12 schools (public, charter, independent)
- Pre-service & in-service teacher education
- Community College ESL programs
- Intensive English Programs (college IEPs)
- Adult and workplace education
- Private Language Schools
MATSOL encourages engaging, interactive presentations that make the theory to practice connection. Successful proposals include practical classroom activities informed by current research and pedagogy, demonstrations of successful instructional practices, examinations of current issues in education, and research that informs educators in the Massachusetts context. Presentations should engage the audience through hands-on or interactive activities when possible.
In alignment with our mission to promote equity and excellence for English learners, MATSOL encourages submission of proposals that show a strong commitment to racial justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion. To reflect this goal, MATSOL is piloting a new section in the proposal to explain how the presentation will address racial justice and/or culturally responsive teaching.
