Event Details

ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNERS: BUILDING ACADEMIC VOCABULARY IN SOCIAL STUDIES THROUGH CREATIVE MOVEMENT
Presented by: The John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts

Led by Lorena Cervantes, dance teacher and arts integration specialist from Virginia
All students benefit from learning through multiple modalities—seeing, hearing, moving, and interpersonal interaction. For English Language Learners (ELLs) in particular, adding kinesthetic learning to the teaching environment opens a world of language learning opportunities. In this fascinating workshop, learn ways to guide movement explorations in which ELL students authentically interact with and internalize academic vocabulary. You’ll apply the process to social studies, specifically to the geography, economics, and culture of the pre-colonial Powhatan people, and consider other applications.
Date: 12/13/2016

Time: 4:30–7:30 p.m.

Length of Event: 3 hours
