Adding Rigor and Complexity to Group Instruction for English Language Learners
A new workshop introducing techniques and ideas from this year’s NYSED / CUNY Teacher Leader Institute. Participants will explore ways to boost language acquisition for English language learners who have goals of post-secondary education and employment. This workshop will focus on teaching methodologies which instructors can bring immediately into the classroom. Activities will include building confidence and fluency through questioning; data mining and use of the “barometer”; visual representation of data; integrating workplace expectations such as class norms; networking and identifying transferable skills; and using an exit ticket.
NOTE: Please dress in layers. The one issue we have, no matter where we have a training, is the room temperature.
Since we cannot seem to find an optimum temperature for everyone, please dress with that in mind. Thank you.
