Course Description:

Tradition Meets Technology: English Language Learners Today (Gr K-12)

Nationally, an average of 10 percent of students in public school are English Language Learners, with the percentages higher in primary grades where students often first enter school systems with little or no English proficiency. The teacher is charged with what can often seem to be a daunting task; that of teaching content and language simultaneously. 

Participants will learn how to access resources to help students’ from various cultural and linguistic backgrounds. Lesson planning template(s) will be suggested to ensure effective planning for ELLs. Participants will be able to differentiate between effective and ineffective teaching methods and understand and implement research-based instructional approaches to language and content area instruction. In addition, participants will explore a language diagnostic tool that is easy to use in informal settings and they then will be able to evaluate the results in order to guide instruction in listening, speaking, reading and writing. Teachers will be able to make informed choices when selecting instructional materials, strategies, and assessments for screening and testing ELLs.
