ABOUT THE WORKSHOPS
1. SCAFFOLDING 2.0: ELEVATING ENGLISH LEARNERS TO NEW HEIGHTS
Friday, December 13 and Monday, December 16, 2019
• Day 1: SCAFFOLDING READING
We take you step-by-step through the process of adapting text by implementing the key scaffolds that allow English Learners greater access to reading. Discover how to strategically embed “good reader” questions into text that promote literacy and engage students in higher-order thinking.
• Day 2: SCAFFOLDING WRITING
We break down the key scaffolds necessary in facilitating student writing and give you the opportunity to apply them with the support of teacher peers. Discover an array of “amplification activities” that concretize student learning around new content and language.
2. INTEGRATING LANGUAGE AND CONTENT
Tuesday, December 17 and Wednesday, December 18, 2019
• Day 1: DEVELOPING LANGUAGE OBJECTIVES
Learn how to assess the language demands of any academic task, thereby anticipating and planning for the linguistic challenges that can impede student comprehension and engagement. We’ll explore the criteria for effective language objectives and provide you plenty of practice in developing them based on a variety of different unit culminating tasks.
• Day 2: EXPLICIT TEACHING OF ACADEMIC LANGUAGE
Explore methods for explicitly teaching the different types of academic language that reinforce content – discourse patterns, language functions, new content vocabulary – essential for your English Learner students. You’ll learn how to design activities that ensure your students get the needed multiple exposures and authentic interactions with new words and academic language structures so that they “stick”.
