Event description

Description

During this session we will share instructional strategies to promote academic language across all content areas. We will focus on modeling, bridging, contextualization, schema building, developing metacognition, and re-presenting text. One benefit of applying these instructional strategies as a part of scaffolding in teaching is to support our ELL students in developing their academic language, which promotes student engagement in the classroom. By the end of this cycle, particpants will:

- Increase their knowledge of academic language and the importance of exposing ELLs to academic language through strategic and purposeful lesson planning.
- Delve into research that supports the acquisition of academic language with ELLs, engage in hands-on activities to support academic language acquisition in content area classes
- Consider the impact of various strategies and structures that impact student work.
