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 3 (Day 3): Participants learn to incorporate additional teaching strategies that focus on building background knowledge and activating prior knowledge, such as grouping configurations that support both language and content learning and clarifications in both L1 and L2. They also learn how to incorporate practice and application activities that reinforce language and content objectives and explore ways to review the objectives, including targeted vocabulary (both subject area/technical and academic vocabulary) and key concepts and ideas. The session also addresses the use of formative and summative assessments to evaluate students.
Maximum of 35 participants. Each additional participant $50.00.
