Duration: 90 minutes each session
Session 1: Cutting-edge sheltering
The fundamental systems, practices, and strategies necessary to ensure that ELLs achieve and thrive in a classroom environment.
Session 2: Itís more than just good teaching
Effective differentiation for ELLs requires that teachers understand the developmental trajectory of language learning, and that those understandings guide lesson modifications in the general education classroom. This session provides a wealth of realistic, low-prep ways to effectively meet the needs of ELL students across proficiency levels.
Session 3: Supporting literacy for the long haul
How to ensure ELLs are constructing meaning from the first word read and every word thereafter. This session also includes important understandings and strategies for vocabulary development.
Session 4: Developing academic language and thinking skills with English language learners
ELLs cannot move to true grade-level proficiency without support with the complexities of academic English. Beginning in kindergarten and continuing throughout the grades, teachers must be aware of the components of academic English and be able to directly support ELL learners in its acquisition. This session will show you how to do so.
