6 Principles for Exemplary Teaching of English Learners, II

1:00 - 2:00 PM

This four-part hybrid workshop series is based on the book The 6 Principles for Exemplary Teaching of English Learners. It is designed for faculty and staff who seek additional strategies for effectively meeting the holistic needs of English Language Learners. Since most faculty and staff regularly interact with ELLs, a common understanding of second language learning and effective instructional and assessment design is needed. You'll learn about second language acquisition, academic language development, and the relationship between language and identity. You'll also apply the 6 Principles to your practice: Know Your Learners, Create Conditions for Language Learning, Design High-Quality Lessons for Language Development, Adapt Lesson Delivery as Needed, Monitor and Assess Student Language Development, and Engage and Collaborate within a Community of Practice. This series is grounded in the belief that we should respect, affirm, and promote students’ home languages and cultural knowledge and experiences as resources, celebrate multilingualism, advocate for language rights, and to help students to view themselves as global citizens.
