Students don’t come to school fluent in academic discourse. Academic language requires a special vocabulary and the use of more formal and sophisticated grammar.
This one-hour webinar will provide you with actionable strategies to make the demands of academic language more accessible to every student in the classroom, particularly English Learners, and raise student achievement.
Jill Youngren, an educator and Senior Educational Consultant with CORE, shares:
- Specific challenges EL students face when simultaneously trying to develop English language skills and learn subject-matter content.
- How to intentionally use everyday instructional practices in order to support English Language Development.
- How to use visual, graphic, and class discussion supports, that are evidence-based practices for English Language Development instruction.
