This webinar will focus on the needs of teachers using content-based language instruction in the classroom. Participants will learn basic concepts and examine methods to connect and integrate content learning and language instruction. We will look at sample materials and tasks for the classroom and consider how best to structure lessons. We will discuss methods for simplifying content to make difficult ideas easier to understand. We will also focus on the need for attention to subject-specific academic vocabulary. Finally we will look briefly at different models for assessing student work.
The webinar will be offered on Wednesday, February 6th at two time: 8:00am and 1:00pm EST. You can attend either session.
