Based on the research and analysis in McREL’s popular Classroom Instruction That Works with English Language Learners book, this two-day professional development workshop will help all teachers—general education and ELL specialists—apply effective research-based instructional strategies to the five stages of language acquisition.
The workshop will show you how to develop students’ oral academic language during subject-matter instruction, using McREL’s Academic Language Framework. You’ll leave the workshop knowing:
- Instructional strategies that enhance ELL student achievement
- The stages of second language acquisition and their instructional implications
- Strategies for engaging ELLs in regular education classrooms
