Developing Academic Language and Literacy for Students in Grades 4-12

2:00 - 3:45pm

Convention Center D133

Presented at: TESOL 2014

New national standards provide opportunities to re-conceptualize what language development means for ELs in academic contexts. Taking a 21st century approach to language and literacy development, presenters show how language is embedded in new standards’ practices, and apply the approach to US history lessons using multimodal strategies.
