This hands-on workshop will present instructional strategies for literacy engagement and scaffolding for ELLs. Research and evidence of exemplary literacy practices in the Hudson Valley demonstrates that ELLs greatly benefit from opportunities to use language in multiple contexts and in different modalities (reading, writing, listening and speaking). Therefore, this hands-on workshop will present before, during and after reading strategies that promote discussion among students and vocabulary development. Teachers will also have an opportunity to use the NYSESLAT Performance Level Descriptions to inform instruction and assess progress. This workshop is intended for all teachers, regardless of content area, who work with ELLs.
