*Presentation Date, participants will only attend one of these sessions

The purpose of this course is to prepare the Commonwealth’s teachers with the knowledge and skills to effectively shelter their content instruction so that our growing population of English language learners (ELLs) can access curriculum, achieve academic success, and contribute their multilingual and multicultural resources as participants and future leaders in the 21st century global economy.  Successful completion of this course qualifies the participant for the DESE SEI Teacher Endorsement.

This course has three overarching goals:

  1. To help teachers effectively carry out their responsibility for the teaching and learning of ELLs as well as to understand the social and cultural issues that contribute to and impact the schooling of ELLs.
  2. To expand teachers’ knowledge of how language functions within academic content teaching and learning, and how children and adolescents acquire a second language.
  3. To provide teachers with practical, research-based protocols, methods, and strategies to integrate subject-area content, language, and literacy development--per the expectations of the World Class Instructional Design and Assessment (WIDA) English Language Development Standards (ELDS)--and thus to support ELL students’ success with all state academic standards.
