CLIMBS Training-of-Trainers Institute


CLIMBS (Content and Language Integration as a Means of Bridging Success) is a professional learning curriculum designed to introduce participants to the use of research-based approaches and WIDA resources to support ELL students in their classrooms.

The CLIMBS Course helps school staff better meet the needs of ELLs by:

  • Providing a space in which educators can collaborate on classroom instruction and assessment for ELLs;
  • Helping educators integrate content and language standards; and
  • Acquainting educators with research-based practices that support the learning of ELLs.

CLIMBS Course Trainers deliver the CLIMBS Course in school or district education contexts. Multi-disciplinary teams of K-12 educators who attend the blended learning course explore and apply research-based teaching approaches and WIDA resources to support their ELL students.
