Supporting English Language Learners
Thu, 30 March 2017, 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM EDT
This new workshop is designed to support teachers with their English language learners. The workshop will introduce participants to the new Welcome to School Kit which includes a poster and curriculum companion. The curriculum companion is designed to support members as they leverage the strengths of multilingual students and their home languages.
Participants will receive and share practical suggestions for school and classroom use on the topics of equity and inclusion, the acculturation process, using the first language as a resource, developing academic language, differentiated instruction and supporting newcomer students arriving from refugee situations. How to determine English as a Second Language and English Literacy Development programming needs will also be covered.
