As the student population becomes increasingly linguistically diverse, educators are faced with the challenge of providing academically rigorous instruction to ELLs. This requires teachers to adopt new strategies that challenge learners to think at higher levels. How do we modify our teaching strategies in the classroom to make sure that these appropriate opportunities happen for ELL students? While many teachers were never trained to teach reading, writing, or ELL students, they get ELL students who are struggling readers or even non-readers in their classes.
Dr. Sharon Faber’s September 30th session will provide specific and practical techniques that can be used by teachers in all subject areas to assist ELL students with their comprehension and vocabulary skills. Register online before September 16. For more details on this full-day session, visit our registration page.
Students are surrounded by visual images all day long: TV, streaming, apps… Examine how technology has changed the creation of visual images in news & ads and discuss what that effect has been on our students. Learn how to help students decipher the messages implicit in visual images while developing lessons that align to the standards.
Join us in Teaching New Literacies to Meet the Standards on Tuesday, July 22. Register online at www.edplus.org.
