Family and culture play an intricate role not only in methods of communicating, but also in shaping the way we think and interact with others. Today, education goes far beyond focusing on literacy and mathematics. Educators that acknowledge, incorporate, and celebrate the whole child can provide access to a world many may view as impossible. As educators we must use and find the best practices for reaching all students and families to provide emotional and technical support, compassion, and encouragement as we partner in facilitating learning at both home and school. Using the Culturally Responsive-Sustaining Education Framework, this workshop will tap into actionable steps educators can take to provide access for all students and their families.

The school library is an obvious place for students learning English as a Second Language (ESL) to play a significant role in their academic success, providing access to books, multimedia, and technology that support language learning. Beyond physical resources, school libraries are finding innovative ways to include ELLs and their families in library programming that assists with navigating a new language and culture. An important part of serving a diverse community is getting to know who they are and what they need. If you have English language learners (ELLs) in your school, you may have questions about how best to teach and support them. You already understand the importance of getting to know your students and learning about ELLs specific and unique needs-their strengths, challenges, and background experiences-is especially important. Knowing these things will help you respond with the right support and create spaces that are welcoming and safe for ELLs to flourish.

21. [HVRBERN-CTLE #23120] Building and Developing Academic Language for ELLs (and All Students) - FOR ARLINGTON CSD ONLY

Program: 2021-2022 - HV-RBE-RN

Audience: All Classroom and Content Area Teachers, Administrators, Teaching Assistants and Speech or Reading providers who support ELLs

Dates: 10/22/2021

NewStarting Soon
An important key to helping English Language Learners (ELLs) and their classmates succeed in the classroom is the mastery of academic language and vocabulary. In fact, all students are academic English Language Learners; not just ELLs. Many people first think of vocabulary, but when it comes to building academic language, it is much more than just teaching Tier 3 vocabulary words.

While content-area vocabulary words are certainly an important component, academic language also refers to the words and phrases used to connect these key words and communicate concepts. The language of school encompasses "words, grammar, and organizational strategies used to describe complex ideas, higher-order thinking processes, and abstract concepts” (Zwiers, 2008).

While an academic language's role seems obvious for reading and writing, academic language is also necessary for listening and speaking. ELLs need strategies that will provide them with a set of tools that they can use to unpack academic language independently and move from the word level to the sentence, paragraph, essay, or chapter and more sophisticated projects.

This workshop will identify ways to build academic language and vocabulary through reading, direct instruction, and interactive activities that can be used before, during and after reading. We will also develop a deeper understanding of how important background knowledge is to the building of academic language and explore ways to build that knowledge.

Audience: K-12 teachers and administrators

Dates: 10/28/2021

New
Most English Language Learners (ELLs) spend the majority of their day in fully-English speaking classrooms. It is critical for students learning English to obtain comprehensible input from their teachers and understand the message being conveyed. It is even more important, when students are experiencing a blended learning model, that ELLs are afforded equal access to instruction that supports language and academic development. Scaffolds are temporary frameworks put in place to give students a supportive learning environment, both in-person and virtual while learning English. During this session, participants will learn several scaffolding strategies to ensure ELLs gain access to the curriculum.

Dates: 10/29/2021

New
In a blink of an eye, virtually all K-12 students in the United States transitioned from traditional face-to-face instruction to remote learning. Many parents and educators thus share a common worry and question: When the pandemic subsides, will kids return to school with lower achievement? There are also concerns that the gap between high- and low-achieving students will become larger.

Now more than ever, it is imperative that educators go far beyond focusing on literacy and mathematics. Educators that acknowledge, incorporate, and celebrate the whole child can provide access to a world many may view as impossible. They can give light when it may seem to be dimming.

This workshop will explore the various traumas many of our families may have experienced and tap into actionable steps we as educators and families can take to provide access for all students.

Please register by: Thursday, 10/28/21 at 12 noon.

Registered participants will receive an email with Zoom access information by late afternoon on October 28th.

Fee: Free
