Pre-Convention Institute: Strategies for Developing Key Uses of Academic Language

1:00 - 5:00pm EDT
Presented at: TESOL 2015

Academic language is increasingly important in K–12 education, especially for English learners. This workshop presents and explores four key uses of academic language at the discourse level central to the new college and career readiness standards: recount (narrative), explain (informational text), argument, and discuss. Teachers gain hands-on experience through lesson and activity planning.
