Description

OSSE invites all District educators to participate in its upcoming English Language Acquisition workshop series. This three-part series is designed to share foundational information about English language acquisition, from the science of language acquisition to useful classroom strategies that can help English learners access the academic curriculum. The three-part workshop series will include:

  • English Language Acquisition 101: The Science of Language Acquisition and Its Implications for the Classroom;
  • English Language Acquisition 102: Language Levels, Language Objectives, and Lesson Planning; and
  • English Language Acquisition 103: Strategies for Comprehensible Input.

The 101 workshop is designed for any educator who is interested in understanding the basics about how English learners learn English. Specifically, participants will learn about:

  • Different types of English learners
  • How second language acquisition happens
  • Differences between social language and academic language
  • Developmental milestones that correspond to each stage of second language acquisition

Please note: instructional strategies will not be covered in the 101 course.

English Language Acquisition 101 will take place on Monday, Oct. 23, 2017, 1-3:30 p.m. at OSSE, Eighth Floor, Room 806A. General and special educators, specials teachers, related service providers, coaches, and administrators are strongly encouraged to attend.

Registration is required. Space is limited and priority registration will be given to individuals with little to no background in second language acquisition.

Dates and times for the 102 and 103 courses will be announced in the LEA Look Forward one month in advance of each workshop.
