Full course description
This webinar series was developed from WIDA’s two-day Scaffolding Language through Learning face- to-face workshop and has been adapted and condensed to best fit an online delivery. The three-part webinar series provides educators with a fresh look at how to engage multilingual learners in rigorous content area learning with a balance of challenge and support. The purpose of the webinar is to encourage educators to consider a dynamic set of classroom practices that support multilingual students as they move toward increasing independence and expertise in grade-level content. Participants will explore how rigorous, well-sequenced curriculum within the content of meaningful experiences contributes to rich classroom interactions that mediate learning. Topics that educators will explore are a) valuing students' resources for learning, b) developing a strong community of learners, and c) engaging students in rigorous curriculum. Audience: This webinar is designed for all educators of multilingual learners. It provides a great
opportunity for teams who work with the same multilingual learners to collaborate. Participants will be
- Develop an understanding of scaffolding practices based on prior knowledge, new learning, and
- Build awareness of macro-and micro-scaffolding practices that apprentice students into
language use for content area learning.
- Consider how students’ resources can support collaborative learning.
- Recognize the importance of establishing a collaborative community of learners that moves
forward and upward together.
- Examine ways to engage students in exploring language use for content learning.
Materials needed for the webinar: Hard copy of webinar packet, 3-5 pieces of rectangular paper (printer paper or 4x6 index cards), headset with microphone, and computer device for each participant with reliable internet connection.
