About the Course

Teachers of all content areas in all grades have English Language Learners (ELLs) in their classrooms, however, few teachers have training and experience specific to these students’ needs. ELLs require explicit language instruction, reading instruction, visual support, and oral practice to achieve mastery of the content.  This course is designed for teacher to adapt current curriculum to include English language support through incorporating a variety of strategies specific for ELLs, but which also support all learners. Application of this learning will be made as teachers outline lessons, design visual aids, write oral discussion structures, and support DBQ (Document Based Question, or primary source document analysis) units.

Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Analyze various types of language functions within a textbook passage.
  • Create visual supports to accompany core content of a lesson/unit
  • Provide written/oral language structures for students to demonstrate academic language and mastery of the content.
  • Identify vocabulary and other supports needed for students to access/analyze primary source documents

Teacher was great and was always available to help with questions. If I were to retake the class, I would have focused all of the forums around my end unit.
