This course will focus on modern strategies for the K-12 teacher to support the learning of English Language Learners. This course is presented in a user-friendly format that includes a wide range of effective teaching strategies to help English Language Learners (ELL) understand content materials as they develop their speaking, reading, writing, and listening skills. Resources are also provided for those who are not literate in their native language and students who have had an interruption in their formal education.
Additionally, teachers will learn strategies in differentiation for ELLs in mainstream class environments, culturally responsive teaching, working with parents and guardians, and benefits of using technology. K-12 teachers will also find practical supports and lesson plan ideas that can be blended into their existing curriculum for various content areas.
