Content Literacy Strategies for Students Learning English

*This is a one (1) day event - Tuesday, February 7, 2017


Audience: Grades 6-12: Middle and High School Content-Area Teachers, Special Education Teachers, and Literacy Coaches

Presenter: Kc Nelson-Oliveria, SERC Consultant 

Description:

We know that students learning English face two sets of demands: to learn the content and to learn English at the same time. This requires strategies that will allow them to access the skills and concepts needed to comprehend academic content as their proficiency in English grows. 

This session examines teaching and learning activities that can support students learning English in acquiring academic language while increasing comprehension of subject-area content. The strategies in this session will also be beneficial for students with language-based learning disabilities.

Participants will draft teaching and learning activities that will support students learning English in their content area, identifying skills and strategies that can translate into their classroom practice.

For registration questions, please contact Lauren Johns, SERC, (860) 632-1485, ext. 256 or johns@ctserc.org.

For content questions, please contact Kc Nelson-Oliveria, SERC, (860) 632-1485 ext. 310 or nelson-oliveria@ctserc.org
