What is Advanced Literacy, and how does it relate to ELL/MLL learner success? In this workshop, participants will take a deep dive into the Advanced Literacy Briefs on Linguistically Diverse Learners and the New York State Next Generation Learning Standards, provided to NYS by Nonie K. Lesaux, PhD & Emily Phillips Galloway, Ed.D. This workshop will define and explore the skills and competencies that enable the achievement of linguisticaliterlly diverse students in literacy while allowing participants to evaluate current structures for the existence of Advanced Literacy Hallmarks, using a tool developed to gauge effectiveness of Curriculum, Materials and Instruction.
