LINGUISTICALLY RESPONSIVE INSTRUCTION FOR IMMIGRANT & REFUGEE YOUTH: CRITICAL PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
This free workshop for K-12 teachers, from July 9-12 and July 16-19, will focus on how to facilitate emergent bilinguals’ reading comprehension and meaning-making through discussions of informational texts in content area classrooms. Teachers will spend each morning observing Carrie Symons’s class as she facilitates middle and high school immigrant and refugee youth’s reading comprehension. After lunch, teachers will spend the afternoon with Dr. Symons and colleagues from the Department of Teacher Education to explore the principles of linguistically responsive instruction and how to integrate them into practice to ensure every student has equitable access to content. Breakfast and lunch will be provided at this event.
Space is limited to 10 participants. The registration deadline is June 8, 2018. Must be able to attend both weeks (it’s an eight-day workshop with classes on Monday – Thursday from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.) SCECHs pending approval. Register now:
