Learn more than 50 EL Strategies

Learn specific teaching strategies to help English Learners improve their language skills and learn content at the same time

Every student needs to learn grade-level content, including English learners. In fact, English learners (ELs) have the challenge of needing to master grade-level content at the same time as they advance their understanding and use of English. This workshop provides educators with more than 50 specific strategies that enable them to achieve these goals whether ELs are designated as starting, emerging, developing, expanding, or bridging.

The training begins with an introduction to the design and delivery of EDI lessons and then emphasizes research-based strategies for teaching ELs.

Built upon two umbrella concepts, the training shows how to:

Make English Easier to Understand

Make English easier to understand, so ELs can have access to grade-level content

Support English Acquisition

Support English language acquisition all day long in content-area lessons in order to improve English Language Development.

After completing this workshop, teachers are able to make immediate instructional decisions about ELs based on effective Checking for Understanding strategies. Teachers begin asking Higher-Order Questions and giving ELs the research-recommended extra “wait-time” to answer, which helps students practice critical thinking. Teachers remark that less classroom disruption occurs because they have more whole-class student engagement during lesson delivery. Students gain self-confidence because teachers know how to de-escalate and differentiate for all learners.
