What's Different about Teaching Reading to Students Learning English (Full Day Institute)

10:45am - 4:30pm

Sheraton Grand - Hendricks/Baker

Presented at: California Association for Bilingual Education (CABE) 2012

In this lively institute, K-8 educators learn how successful reading instruction is similar and different for English learners (ELs) and proficient English speakers. Using a “principles-to- practices” approach, the presenter explains how the recommendations of the National Literacy Panel (August and Shanahan, 2006) and other research findings inform reading practices for ELs. Through fun, hands-on activities, participants experience, reflect upon and apply effective strategies to teach the major components of reading for ELs. Handouts provided.
