Upcoming sessions
  • Strategies for Teaching Academic Language (LearnUFT Manhattan)
    December 13, 2018 - 4:00pm - 6:00pm

    In this session for Manhattan teachers and paraprofessionals, participants will learn about the complexities of academic language, which pose challenges to all students, particularly ELLs. While students in K-3 are learning to read, students are reading to learn in the content areas in grades 3 and beyond. Even in early elementary grades, however, the language of nonfiction texts for Science and Social Studies units include aspects of academic language that are obstacles to reading comprehension and accessing content knowledge. In this workshop, educators will learn about the challenges and strategies to teach various characteristics of academic language: the differences between social and academic language, sophisticated vocabulary words, complex noun phrases, nominalizations, formal sentence structures, complex grammatical structures, and multiple phrases and clauses within sentences that each convey their own message. The activities and strategies to be shared in this workshop will inform teachers on how to integrate language and content instruction. Participants will earn two CTLE hours.
