Workshop focuses on language and content sheltered instruction and explores proven-effective, research-based planning tools for working with ELL in elementary classrooms or secondary content-area classrooms. This is a three-session (three full days) workshop, presented either concurrently or separately. Session 1 (Day 1): Participants learn effective strategies for planning and preparation: how to select and use appropriate basal and supplemental instructional materials, adapt content to different levels of ELL proficiency, and deliver lessons. They also learn about comprehensible input, and how it is used to inform explanations of academic tasks, and the application of a variety of classroom techniques to make content concepts clear (such as modeling, visuals, hands on activities, demonstrations, experiments, gestures, and body language).
Maximum of 35 participants. Each additional participant $50.00.
