1. Making Academic Language Accessible to ELL Students
Academic language is different from the social language that students often pick up naturally in conversation. In this lesson, teachers will learn how to make academic language accessible for English language learner (ELL) students.
2. Modeling Effective Communication in ELL Classrooms
This lesson examines social, political, gender, and socioeconomic implications of language use. See how these affect how we speak, and find out strategies for providing an inclusive and equal opportunity learning environment.
3. Questioning Techniques for Discussions in ELL Classrooms
One important aspect that is often overlooked when teaching English language learners (ELLs) is the importance of how questions are formed and delivered. This lesson explores questioning techniques that can be used for discussions in an ELL classroom.
4. Modifying ELL Environments to Help Students Communicate
ELL teachers can modify and adapt learning environments to enable linguistically diverse students to use effective communication. This lesson gives you an overview of how to do this by using visual, verbal, non-verbal, and written resources.
