[HVRBERN-CTLE ID #23120] Teaching Reading to English Language Learners: What's Different? - at Southern Westchester BOCES

  • Southern Westchester BOCES, 3rd Floor 450 Mamaroneck Avenue Harrison, NY 10528 United States (map)

Instruction in the five pillars of reading is necessary—but not sufficient—for teaching English language learners to read and write proficiently in English. Participants will explore what is different about teaching the key components of reading (phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary and comprehension) to English language learners, how to create opportunities to develop oral language, and strategies for before, during and after reading supports. We will consider cross-linguistic relationships in second-language learners and the sociocultural contexts for literacy development.

Cost: Free 

Lunch: On your own
