Full course description

June 13-14
Presenter: Jane Hill Classroom Instruction That Works with English Language Learners views the nine categories of research-based instructional strategies first identified in Classroom Instruction that Works (Marzano, Pickering, & Pollock, 2001) through a filter of five stages of language acquisition. The result is applications that allow general education K-12 teachers to successfully engage ELLs and others in need of learning academic language. This workshop focuses on the academic language (vocabulary, grammar and discourse) accompanying subject matter instruction.

ELL learning in a 21st century classroom   Presenters: Dr. Montalvo-Balbed (language learning expert) and Mr. Balbed (Instructional Technology expert)   Intended audience: Grades 3-12 teachers   Educators are continually challenged with providing the best opportunities for learning and language development for our English Learners (ELs). This one-day training will combine literacy strategies from a face-to-face classroom with those of a digital classroom in the areas of receptive language skills (listening and reading) as well as productive skills (speaking and writing). Attendees will interact with digital tools and resources that will help them give their students extended opportunities for relevant and content embedded practice of the four domains in WIDA: listening, speaking, reading and writing. 

Participants can earn up to a $450 stipend ($150/day) for attendance. Space is limited to 50 seats.
