    "Why are we studying this?" is a great question that humanities teachers are asked daily.

    New
    SULLIVAN COUNTY BOCES CONFERENCE DAYS

    Educators of students who are culturally, linguistically, and academically diverse can apply the framework of Universal Design for Learning (UDL) to support them in meeting state standards. UDL is a way of thinking and planning for teaching and learning that helps give all students an equal opportunity to succeed. This approach offers flexibility in the ways that students access and engage with material and demonstrate what they are learning. It guides teachers in "designing" lesson plans that are "universally" accessible to all learners, especially for diverse learners. It also provides for a culturally responsive experience by being flexible, engaging, validating, strategic and motivating. When applied to English language learners, teachers can create the access points students will need to succeed with a "one size fits all" curriculum and standards.

    In Parts 1 and 2 of this workshop, participants will:
    -Examine the Universal Design for Learning framework to see how it applies to teaching culturally and linguistically diverse learners.
    -Identify the potential barriers, preferences and supports for multilingual learners within the content areas.
    -Observe the elements of UDL in lessons that provide multiple means of action, expression and engagement to learners in classroom video examples.
    -Design instruction utilizing the principles of UDL that account for learner variability and anticipate student needs.

    Part 1: February 12, 2021
    Part 2: March 19, 2021


    To access these workshops, Zoom links will be shared with registered participants to the email addresses they used to enroll in Frontline (MLP).

    SULLIVAN COUNTY BOCES CONFERENCE DAY

    Research shows that students learn more effectively when they have familiarity with the content they are about to learn. How can we activate the prior knowledge of ELL/MLL students in their new language? Which strategies can we use to provide ELL/MLL students with the background knowledge they may not already have? In this workshop, participants will learn several interactive strategies for activating and building upon the background knowledge that students need to access literacy and content lesson topics and themes, across grade levels. Participants will then choose a newly learned strategy and brainstorm how they might include it in future lessons and units.

    To access this workshop, a Zoom link will be shared with registered participants to the email addresses they used to enroll in Frontline (MLP).

    Fee: Free
