If you are a classroom teacher who has English language learners (ELLs) in class and you wonder how you are going to meet their needs this semester, this workshop is for you! Join us as we explore the basics of teaching students for which English is a second language. This one day workshop will combine content with specific classroom strategies you can use tomorrow to meet student needs. Over the course of this interactive workshop we will examine academic language, specifically, Building Background and Oral Language Production, including practical strategies and activities for differentiation, higher order thinking, group work, and content connections.
