Teaching Academic Content to English Language Learners
Whether you teach in a designated ELL classroom or have ELL students within your ABE/ASE classroom, this workshop is for you! This method helps teachers plan and deliver lessons with all students’ language needs in mind. Participants will gain practical skills to collaborate, share, and implement lessons that incorporate all eight components of sheltered instruction in order to teach content while developing students’ academic and social language. Sheltered instruction is a research-based framework for teaching both academic content and language skills in ways that are effective for English language learners (ELLs). Sheltered instruction will help students transition to the HSE or to a post-secondary training program.
What you will learn:
- Understand sheltered instruction and its effectiveness with English Language Learners as well as Adult Basic Education and Adult Secondary Education students.
- Identify learning and instructional strategies that are appropriate for English Language Learners.
- Learn how sheltered instruction can be incorporated into lesson planning.
- Write content and language objectives for lessons.
- Identify ways to increase student interaction in the classroom.
