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
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.
