SEI: Understanding Academic Language to Improve Content Area Instruction for ELLS (Differentiated by Content Area)   

SEI:  Understanding Academic Language to Improve Content Area Instruction for ELLs (Differentiated by Content Area)

 

This course will provide in-service teachers with the subject matter knowledge, professional standards, skills, and dispositions essential to effectively shelter their content instruction to ensure English language learners (ELLs) in their classrooms will successfully access curriculum and achieve academic success in the area of academic vocabulary. Teachers will learn about theories and experience evidence-based instructional practices, protocols, methods, and strategies to develop academic vocabulary. Teachers will have opportunities to practice specific modeled instructional strategies for teaching identified features of academic language in different disciplines (math, science, social studies, and ELA) while promoting language development in all language domains (reading, speaking, listening, writing) in ways appropriate for ELL students at different language proficiency levels. Teachers will take into account the English Language Development (ELD) World Class Instructional Design and Assessment (WIDA) standards and the Massachusetts Curriculum Framework, which incorporates the CCSS (Pre K-12), when creating lesson plans. They will use the Teacher Endorsement Lesson Plan Template, approved by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, to create mini-lessons focused on integrating academic vocabulary for the target grade level/content area.
