Comprehensible Input and its Implications to the Bilingual, ESL, and Spanish Classroom

Quick Overview

This session focuses on Second Language Acquisition theories as presented by researchers (Krashen, 1981; Krashen & Terrell, 1983), including Jim Cummins’s distinction between two types of language: basic interpersonal communications skills (BICS) and cognitive academic language proficiency (CALP). Participants learn how these theories can help develop effective instructional strategies and assessments that guide students along a continuum of language development—from cognitively undemanding, context-embedded curricula to cognitively demanding, context-reduced curricula (Robson, 1995).
Maximum of 35 participants. Each additional participant $50.00.
