PreConvention Institute: Building Secondary Newcomers' Language and Literacy Skills in Content Instruction

8:00am - 12:00pm EDT
Presented at: TESOL 2016

Secondary newcomer students may be doing not only “double the work” -- learning a new language as well as content -- but even quadruple the work, learning beginning literacy skills and formal schooling norms simultaneously.

In this hands-on workshop, participants design instructional strategies for developing the language and literacy skills of newcomers in the secondary content classroom.

Target Audience: ESOL, content, and literacy teachers; middle-grade and secondary teachers

Skill Level: All levels of expertise
