Teaching Strategies that Support Students Who are Learning the Language of Instruction in Multilingual and Bilingual Classrooms

1:45 - 4:45pm
Presented at: CIES 2019

This workshop will introduce participants to second language teaching methodology appropriate for early grade learners in multilingual reading and math classes. By the end of the workshop, participants will be familiar with the basic principles of second language acquisition, will be able to demonstrate activities that support second language learners, and will be able to describe best practice for multilingual classrooms.

We will discuss definitions of multilingual and bilingual, and participants will learn techniques for both. The use of a decision tool to understand in what contexts these techniques are most applicable will be discussed.
