BUILDING THE BASE, LITERACY: 

Supporting High Quality Education for Newcomers in Grades 6-12

This institute develops participants' theoretical understanding and the pedagogical skills to provide students who are new to English with deep and accelerated learning opportunities. It builds on the notion of an amplified curriculum. Accordingly, some of the topics you will learn in this institute include:

 

  • Shifts needed in the education of adolescent newcomer English Learners and how they impact everyday instruction of newcomer and beginning English Learner students

  • The design and enactment of lessons and tasks that engage students in quality interactions from the very first day of school

  • High challenge, high support lessons that weave conceptual, analytical and language practices seamlessly

  • How to amplify instruction for newcomers

  • How to invite students to participate in diverse types of listening: listening for gist, global listening, and listening for specific purposes and speaking with diverse interlocutors

  • How to promote students' metalinguistic understanding of English; experience, analyze, and apply tasks that promote reading and writing with beginning English Learners
