Participants will be introduced to sound and scientific research as it promotes literacy across all content areas to help ELL students build foundational skills across reading, writing, speaking and listening. They’ll learn the scaffolds behind them that aid students in the important transition process across all content areas. Intentional, consistent, and rigorous teaching of reading and writing strategy that improves student achievement will engage the 90/90/90 principled approach. Participants completing this course will take away implementation tools that include graphic organizers, semantic maps, thinking aids, checklists, rubrics and more.

Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Relate scientific theory to classroom literacy theory and strategy across specific content areas for ELL students.
  • Scaffold student progress along a rigorous strategy continuum.
  • Assemble research-based literacy strategies into lessons for rigorous application and implementation.

This course is 20 hours
