Scaffolding Learning through Language
April 15 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Back by popular demand! When previously offered, 100% of the participants of this workshop said they would immediately incorporate the strategies they learned into their classrooms!
Here’s what educators said:
“The sequence and the engagement activities were VERY well planned. The activities helped me understand learning from an EL’s perspective without making me feel like I’m in kindergarten. The activities were NOT childish, but they clearly put me in the shoes of the learners.”
“I would recommend this workshop to other educators; not just EL teachers.”
“I felt that the workshop moved from theory to practical in a very effective way.”
“Absolutely enjoyed all the various strategies where we got to discuss and write in different ways… I definitely took several strategies home with me.”
This webinar series is designed for all educators of multilingual learners. It was developed from WIDA’s two-day Scaffolding Learning through Language face-to-face workshop and has been adapted to best fit an online delivery.
The purpose of the webinar series is to provide educators with a dynamic set of classroom practices that support English learners as they gain independence and expertise in grade-level content. Participants will explore how rigorous, well-sequenced curriculum within the context of meaningful, shared experiences contribute to rich classroom interactions that mediate learning.
This series will qualify for 5 hours toward the NDDPI EL Cafe Credit at https://continuinged.umary.edu/courses/cafe-credit-2021.
