The New York City Writing Project (NYCWP) will host TWO summer open institutes for teachers of all grades and content areas who would like to explore the ways teachers can support New Langugae Learners when writing in their non-native language. This four-day workshop series will introduce participants to the NYCWP's unique student-centered ways of approaching literacy instruction in all subject areas, with a particular emphasis on meeting the needs of NLLs and ENL students.
In these sessions, participants will:
- investigate the role of students' native languages in writing;
- learn to engage students in different texts and support reading and writing, as well as language development and vocabulary acquisition;
- explore the benefit of using varied sources to engage students in multiple writing experiences;
- understand ways to move between writing scaffolds and "open" writing tasks;
- engage in and come away with strategies designed to develop student strengths, motivate reluctant students, and address student needs;
- forge professional relationships with those who teach NLLs in other schools and join the tradition of teachers teaching teachers as part of the NYCWP community.
These full-day sessions will meet each day from July 18th - 21st, from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. There will be a one-hour lunch break each day.
These workshops are sequential: by registering, for this event, you are signing up for all four sessions. Please note that partial refunds are not possible and plan on attending all four sessions.
