Description

Co-teaching for English language learners (ELLs) has become a growing practice in the development of English language skills within the context of content-area instruction. Yet, many teachers and school leaders continue to ask questions about co-teaching even though it may already be established method of instruction in their schools. This workshop will have participants explore how to develop more equitable instruction for ELLs as well as build collaborative partnerships among teachers in the co-taught class. Participants will examine the inherent challenges and possible solutions to implement the four key components of an integrated, collaborative model—co-planning, co-instruction, co-assessment, and reflection. These key components will be illustrated using authentic video clips of both novice and experienced co-teaching teams. The presenters will guide participants to establish a baseline for improving co-teaching for ELLs and develop short-term and long-term plans to support the language, literacy, and content skills of ELLs in the integrated classroom.

Audience

K-12 teachers and administrators; co-teaching teams of ELL and general education teachers and school leaders are strongly encouraged to attend together.

Registration Fee

$ 195.00 members
$ 235.00 non-members joining MATSOL (includes membership dues)

Description

This interactive session will address the complex questions that arise when trying to determine whether an English learner has a genuine speech and/or language disorder.  Among the topics that will be addressed are

  • Factors that may contribute to superficial language difficulties (looking at global, cultural and communicative competence)
  • Brain and language: new findings and the bilingual brain
  • Sorting out language disorders from language differences: recommended procedures in assessment and intervention incorporating case studies
  • Optimal Language Learning Environment and Experience in English (OLLEEE)
  • Participants will review current literature and research focusing on the assessment of ELs with or without speech/language disorders. They will review case studies and practice adopting/adapting the RIOT (Review, Interview, Observation, Test) approach for assessment.

By the end of the session, participants will have identified important guiding principles for the assessment of speech and/or language disorders for ELs.

Participants will view and discuss video clips of teaching to understand how to create the optimal conditions for language and content learning in K-12 classrooms.
