Strategies For Teaching Science To ELL Students
Workshop Leaders: Grisel Cordero and Meg Cassedy-Blum
Come learn some excellent strategies to incorporate in your middle school science course that will be sure to help reach and meet your ELL students' needs. Participants of this workshop will spend some time in "ELL student-mode" as a portion of the material will be presented in a language other than English - so as to gain a better perspective of how powerful these strategies can be in communicating science content to an English language learner.
Pizza lunch for all at 1 pm!
Note: Please sign up for ONLY 1 workshop on the March 26th NOT BOTH. As these two workshops are both 3 hours and run simultaneously from 10am to 1pm in separate rooms at Teachers College.
We take photographs and record video of our workshops in order to publicize a positive image of science teaching, and of STEMteachersNYC - a recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. If you register, you are agreeing to be photographed and to have your voice and image video-recorded. You are also agreeing to relinquish all your rights to the photographs and video recordings.
If you do not wish to be photographed or video-recorded, you must inform us when you check in at the beginning of the workshop. We will take one photograph of your face so that we can erase your image if we happen to catch it by chance during the workshop, and we will do our best to avoid you. We would also appreciate your cooperation in positioning yourself at the edge of the group so as to help us avoid you.
