Classroom Instruction That Works
with English Language Learners

July 19-20, 2017 

Based on the research and analysis in McREL's popular Classroom Instruction That Works with English Language Learners book, this two-day professional development workshop will help all teachers—general education and ELL specialists—apply effective research-based instructional strategies to the five stages of language acquisition.

The workshop shows how to develop students' oral academic language during subject-matter instruction, using McREL’s Academic Language Framework. It also provides tips for teaching, and offers lesson examples aligned to the Common Core State Standards and the Next Generation Science Standards. Participants will leave the workshop knowing:

  • Instructional strategies that enhance student achievement
  • The stages of second language acquisition and their instructional implications
  • Strategies for engaging English language learners in K–12 regular education classrooms

Who should attend?
K–12 educators in all subject areas, staff developers, curriculum instructors, building administrators 

$298 per person. Materials as well as beverages, lunch, and morning/afternoon snacks provided.
