Imagine being in a room where everyone is
speaking a language completely unfamiliar to you. Many students in our schools
face this problem on a daily basis. We will help prepare you to help children
in all grades (K-12) to overcome language barriers and what to expect from
students coming from different countries and educational backgrounds. You will
develop a greater awareness of their needs in your multilingual/multicultural
school district. We will provide you with strategies that you will find helpful
to implement into your own lessons. We gear this class toward discussing the
best practices for English Language Learners/Bilingual Learners. We will
address co-teaching strategies and supports, and scaffolds that support
ELLS/MLLs (Multilingual learners) in mastering core content. We will cover the
identification process for ELLS/MLLs, Language Learning vs. Disability, and
integrating language and content instruction for ELLs/MLLs. We will also
address cultural responsiveness and cultural competency.
