Course Description:

Academic Discourse at the Secondary Level As a result of this course, participants will increase the amount of discourse in the classroom, thereby also deepening students' reading and writing skills.  Research shows that as students increase academic discourse, their reading and writing skills are also enhanced as they more deeply learn the academic vocabulary and text structures of the content area.  Throughout the course, participants will learn strategies for increasing student interaction, as well as increasing the quality of student interactions to be sure that they focus on content, utilizing the language of the content areas.  Vocabulary instruction as well as other key aspects of academic language instruction will be integrated into instruction.  Participants will build lesson plans that show more formal, academic language and vocabulary use based on the course of study.
