Academic language development is a critical component of instruction for all learners. As a result, both the NYS ELA/Literacy Standards, as well as the NYS Bilingual Common Core Progressions, focus closely on academic language development. This seminar will help general education teachers target and improve academic language for all learners across disciplines and grade levels, particularly those who are learning English. Participants will identify the differences between social and academic language, analyze the academic language demands of a text, and examine research-based strategies for targeting academic language development in all domains of language. Participants will reflect on and strategically redesign a lesson based on NYS standards and best practices for English learners.
