SUMMARY

This two-day workshop provides educators with a fresh look at how to engage multilingual learners in rigorous content area learning with a balance of challenge and support. The purpose of the workshop is to encourage educators to consider a dynamic set of classroom practices that support multilingual students as they move toward increasing independence and expertise in grade-level content. Participants will explore how rigorous, well-sequenced curriculum within the content of meaningful experiences contributes to rich classroom interactions that mediate learning.

KEY AUDIENCE

This workshop is designed for all educators of multilingual learners. It provides a great opportunity for teams who work with the same language learners to collaborate.

Participants will be able to:

  • Develop an understanding of scaffolding practices based on prior knowledge, new learning, and shared experience.
  • Build awareness of macro- and micro-scaffolding practices that apprentice students into language use for content area learning.
  • Consider how students’ resources can support collaborative learning.
  • Recognize the importance of establishing a collaborative community of learners that moves forward and upward together.
  • Examine ways to engage students in exploring language use for content learning.
