Helping English Language Learners in Grades 4-12 Meet Standards for Reading and Writing

This engaging and interactive session provides research-based methods and concrete ideas for teachers to successfully support ELLs in meeting challenging state academic standards in reading and writing using “The Voice,” a narrative excerpt about Marian Anderson, and information about the civil rights movement. Teachers will learn scaffolding techniques for helping ELLs with close reading, developing explicit language structures, and writing that will enable them to apply these techniques in their own settings. All practices build on and regard the primary languages and cultural backgrounds of the students as valuable assets.
